Comments This is our second time this year diving with Giles and Deanna of Wall to Wall Diving. We have probably dived with every operation on Grand Cayman and have finally found the best. Wall to Wall caters to small groups of divers so everyone receives personal attention. They always try to find the best dive sites based on visibility, current, and surface chop. They allow experienced divers to dive their own profile as long as they can show some sense of responsibilty. With a young diver(14)present on the dives during this trip, Giles or Deanna would split the lead responsibilities on the deep dives dividing the divers by experience level. Giles and Deanna are great at finding creatures both large and small. They are both still excited about getting in the water everyday. Wall to Wall picks you up at your hotel or condo anywhere on Seven Mile Beach. Due to strong north winds, we were not able to dive the north wall this trip. However, we dove some great sites on the northwest side and made a trip to the south side of the island one day.
Sunshine Suites is a fairly new Wyndham property across the street from the beach. We stayed in the middle size unit which had 2 queen size beds and a kitchenette all in one room. The larger units have a small living room separate from the bedroom. There was a rinse area for dive equipment and a key entry building with dive lockers. The beach was a quick walk across the street. Sunshine Suites provided beach chairs and towels....of course Seven Mile Beach was perfect.
We found the restaurants to be mediocre and expensive...I would recommend a condo with full kitchen unless money is no object. The grocery stores are first class with anything you need available. One thing to try is one of the numerous "Jerk" places on the island. Locals set up a barbeque pit and sell Jerk Chicken or Pork on the roadside. These were the best meals we had!
Grand Cayman remains an all time favorite dive trip for us...you just need to find a good operation like Wall to Wall that seeks out the great dive sites and still loves getting wet everyday.
