Comments We last dived Little Cayman in 1997; one of our first dive resorts. Since then, a lot of the coral isn't there, and the diversity and quantity of sea life has signficantly gone down. One nurse shark, a few grouper, no pelagics. But the Bloody Bay wall is still very nice, the accomodations were good, and it was a good place to do some very laid back, no current diving.

When we arrived, one dive boat had just had a small fire, and another had rudder issues, so there were only two dive boats operating. About 17 divers on our boat for the morning dives, with 1-2 guides. Some tried to find critters.

There were some great dive-through structures on the wall, with better viz at depth vs. near the boat. The food was served buffet style, lots of it, but not too great. Food at the bar was better, and the pirates' point and constellation were much better
