On the boats:  nice table reserved for cameras; no boat rinse tank, but
easy-to-use fresh water hose, crew very good about handling cameras at
beginning and end of dives.  On land, there was a dedicated camera rinse

We studied the Nitrox course materials the first two days, took the test,
and then dove with free Nitrox tanks the rest of the week.

Sharon and Alex were our primary DMs, and they were excellent: thorough
briefings, able assistance, and hard work to find the best sites each day. 
Also dove with Dottie, Neil and Sunny, who were equally wonderful.  Alex
and Sunny cracked us up with jokes during the surface intervals!  Boats are
well-equipped and comfortable.

There appears to be some residual effect of the recent hurricanes - fewer
fish and some coral damage.  But, overall, it was wonderful diving.  We had
a great encounter with one of the Nassau Groupers who like to be petted by
divers.  It found us and stayed with us an entire dive, even following us
to the boat at the end.  Got some wonderful photos and video of a spotted
eagle ray feeding in the sand, and also nice turtles, morays and sting
rays.  Beautiful swim-throughs and sheer walls.

Annabelle in the dive shop was very helpful, and Benny, the photo pro, came
through when we discovered we had left critical parts for an Ikelite
housing at home.  The manager, Jason, went out of his way to help us, and
took care of whatever we needed.  Overall, the resort and dive operation
staff were the best we've encountered.

The rooms at Little Cayman Beach Resort have been completely renovated, and
are beautiful and clean.  The dining room includes a screened porch where
we had most of our meals.  The food at all meals was the best we've had at
a dive resort, particularly at lunch and dinner.  There were always
numerous gourmet entree selections, incredible home-made soups at dinner,
and fabulous desserts at lunch and dinner.  We often ate two desserts at
each meal (but we managed not to put on any weight).  The bartender, Mark,
does amazing card tricks and is very friendly. The whole resort is relaxed
and comfortable, and wildlife interest is provided by the resident iguanas
during the day, and large hermit crabs at night.
