Comments Our two trips to Little Cayman have both been good diving and overall general experience. Conditions this time were windier than we would have liked, preventing trips to some dive sites. Saw lots of good stuff, turtles, rays, sharks (including reported Hammerhead although I personally couldn't see much of head), lots of good little stuff including pipefish, shrimp. Divemasters found and captured several lionfish.

Southern Cross is a first class operation, accomodations and food were very good, service excellent, good and entertaining Dive Team. Little pricey compared to other area options but worth the money. We had been to Pirates Point Resort previously and highly enjoyed that experience but would probably go back to Southern Cross due to better accomodations, superior dining/bar area, better beach and non diving options. Little Cayman was a good experience.
