This was my fifth trip to Little Cayman Beach Resort. The resort remains
top notch, but has slipped just a little from previous trips. Morale seemed
a little low for some of the divemasters. I heard they were being
overworked even more than normal. However, divemaster Liz Blengino was
terrific and I am glad she once again crewed our boat.

Visibility was the worst I have experienced in 7-8 trips to Little Cayman.
Also some of the sites were covered in algae. The dive site, Joy's Joy, has
been terrible for the last two trips and all dive operations should
consider finding new dive sites to replace this one. One of the divemasters
mentioned the need to place new moorings for additional dive sites. I think
that is a good idea.

Overall, I still think Little Cayman offers a lot of wonderful diving and I
would recommend Reef Divers and the Little Cayman Beach Resort. However,
it's time to return to the Indo Pacific region.
