Fresh water tank on the boat. Rinse facilities on the dock and in the
rooms. Bring your own film. With digital photos and video - this question
is less relevant than in the past. Not sure there is a processing facility
on the island - doubt it

We arrived on Monday after Hurricane Charley went by on Thursday. They got
lots of rain - needed - and some wind. No one evacuated. The result was
less than perfect viz at Bloody Bay and Jackson. We came here 10-15 years
ago and wanted to see the "improvements" and lament the good ole
days. Great diving . The people at Southern Cross Club couldn't have been
more helpful. 3 old timers enjoyed their stay. Because of the rain - lots
of flying teeth. Take "Catus Juice" instead of deet - stuff
works.  The improvements were- AC in the bedroom and better food. The scuba
dock is nice with fresh water and wetsuit hang ups near the boat. Steve and
Jason are the experienced DM's - both Brits. Helpful with the small stuff -
pipefish and seahorses in Cayman? Saw turtles nearly every dive. Saw
reef,nurse, bull and hammerheads. Eagle and sting rays. Huge Grouper -
Nassau and Tiger. Coral and sponges were healthly looking. Videoed a large
group of squid - even got two mating - I think. International group of
friendly divers. I was the only jerk with a camera. Spacious dive boat had
proper working radio - fresh water and a well equipted first aid kit. Max.7
divers on our trip - usually 5 or 6. Dammed nice trip
