Stayed at Conch Club Condos. (Managed by Little Cayman Beach Resort.) Food
is expensive at the one and only local grocery, but still less than the
resort's food plan. Plus by not being tied to the resort (though dinner
there was great),we had the option of trying other restaurants on the
island. The condo was well-equipped, the view from the 2nd floor master
bedroom balcony was fantastic, and the extra space, when our daughter and
her boyfriend came to visit for 6 days, was quite comfortable.

Reef Divers is a very capable, efficient and well-run operation. We were
there for twelve straight days, so we dove Nitrox ($10/tank.) Procedure was
to analyze, then label your own tanks the day before they were loaded on
the boat.

Our boat captain was 25 yrs. old and the guide-crew was only 21. Still they
were careful, experienced divers handling both a paraplegic diver and a
bent Nitrox diver quite competently. (Watch your ascent rates.) They were
knowledgeable of the critters to be found at each site and gave detailed,
illustrated briefings.

The diving was all done within the marine park. Mainly wall dives, many
with swim-throughs. Coral heads or sandy flats and mini-walls to finish.
The visibility was 50 to 80 ft., actually less than I expected for Little
Cayman. There were turtles on many dives, a lot of very large lobsters, and
many groupers from small to Goliath with several Nassaus that could be
petted. Also saw both southern stingrays and spotted eagle rays, as well as
seahorses at two sites. The soft corals in the shallow dive areas were
healthy. Shark sightings were few. Did see ocean triggerfish twice and
large horse-eyed jacks. The schools of snappers and grunts were smaller
then when we visited the Brac and Little Cayman 15 years ago. Still this
was very good Caribbean diving and an excellent dive operation.
