Comments Little Cayman diving was excellent. The best wall diving, swim throughs and coral. Saw turtles on every dive. Nurse sharks and Stingrays on occasion. Divemaster Lowell took our group where we wanted to go, helped on the boat and in the water. Sam McCoy's Dive Lodge is an excellent place to stay if your a true diver. Family atmosphere, all meals included in package, served family style. Rooms were comfortable. Mary McCoy made sure you had what you needed. Its not a posh resort, but geared toward divers who want to be in the water. I would go back in a minute.
