Boats have camera table, but no air to dry parts or to do any adjustments
while on boat. Had to rely on other divers to assist with camera in and out
of water as dive masters busy with getting divers up and tanks switched

This was our second trip and would go back for third in future
Diving - Overall good - lots of turtles and groupers, several juvenile
drums and nurse sharks, several anemies, plus saw 2 reef sharks on deeper
dives. Little to no currents. Reefs in good shape - especially Great Wall
(East and West). Easy boat diving and assistance by staff.  Dive staff
(Gary, Dottie and Michael) were good and allowed divers to dive own
profiles and not fuss if a couple of minutes late in surfacing.  Several
divers got bit by sea lice - looked liked large mosquito bites on neck and
arms. Strange but only some divers got bit while others on same dive boat
did not. Can be very itchy - bring medicine to stop itching. Missed one day
of diving due to weather - lots of rain but more importantly it was windy
and boats could not make it out of the cut in the reef. Reef Divers (after
asking) gave us 1 day diving credit on next visit (no time limit).
Accomodations - Overall good - All meals were excellent - Chef Tucker is
great - room was clean and maintained as was pool and other areas. On last
2 days it was the migration of little crabs - they were EVERYWHERE - even
got into the room when the door opened. They were about 3 inches maximum -
more of a nuisance.  They covered the walkways and terrances.
Flights - flew via Miami to Grand Cayman on Cayman Air. Then Island Air to
Little Cayman. All bags arrived OK (one on later flight but did not affect
us), had to pay excess weight for over 110lbs (2 divers)- both going and
coming back.
