Enforced diving restrictions  
60 minutes max, we did not have any dives more than 90 feet (although rough
conditions may have limited the dive sites). By "dive your own profile
- NO" I mean that you cannot just go anywhere you want - stay somewhat
with the group. No alcohol consumption prior to diving.  No decompression
diving.

This is a resort that prides itself on service resulting in lots of return
divers. The dive location is legendary - loaded with corals, fishes,
turtles, sharks with occasional spectacular sightings like whale sharks,
hammerheads etc.  Interestingly, there is no thermocline, so the water is
comfortable top to bottom.  If you're there when conditions are calm,
visibility is excellent. The island has at this writing about 170 people
living there and thus has the absolute charm of no concerns about theft or
safety. There is a well stocked general store, liquor store, very
professional health clinic (which I can attest to having needed their

all meals (really very good) and beach equipmen ...

We just came back from Southern Cross,  and I agree wholeheartedly with
this review.   Very accurate and covers all the bases.

We were there in 2014 and are headed back this January.  Great place and
some of the best or maybe the best diving in the Caribbean. I understand
they are just now redoing the pool including adding a depth of ten feet.  
Great staff which really makes a difference.

The three dive option is a definite advantage over other resorts on Little
Cayman.
