I enjoyed my first trip to the Grand Caymans. The diving was different from
Cozumel in that there were no currents and no dive masters going along on
each dive. Also travel time to the dive sites were shorter in the Caymans.

The weather in March was very pleasant (low 80s) and we had a lot of sunny
days. There was a lot of shopping and exploring to take up the afternoon
hours. The Turtle Farm is a must see, but don't bother going to Hell which
is a real tourist trap. Learning how and were to catch the city buses is an
advantage. Seven Mile Beach is beautiful.
If you want isolation, don't stay in or around Georgetown.

I enjoyed diving in the Grand Caymans. In a weeks time I saw spotted  eagle
rays, barracuda, tarpon, angle fish, lobster, banded shrimp, french grunts,
fairy basslets and others I could't identify.

The Sunset House is a dive oriented establishment. The people were friendly
and helpful. I would go there again.

One thing to keep in mind in going to the Caymans is that it is 25% more
expensive than in the U.S. Overall, I'm glad I have this experience logged
in my dive book.
