Comments In previous visits to Grand Cayman, we dived with some of the larger dive operators including Red Sail, Surfside, Parrots Landing,
Fisheye, Ocean Frontiers and Dive Tech. This year we decided to dive with Wall to Wall Diving based on positive reviews in
Undercurrent and we are glad we did. The owners, Giles and Deanna exceeded our expectations. Their boat is relatively
large ( 42') for the number of divers they allow (max of 8). Once or twice they ran the boat just for me. Another time they adjusted
their schedule to allow us a little extra sleep. They made every effort to take us to the best North Wall sites but took us West
when the weather required that. Those wanting guided dives were always offered a choice of deep or shallow. We prefer to buddy
dive, to set our own depth profiles, and to maximize bottom time for photography while respecting our computer's limits. Wall to
Wall Diving allowed us this freedom. Our bottom times for the deeper dives were always at least 45 minutes with bottom times
well over an hour at some of the shallower sites. This is nearly twice the bottom time we're been allowed with larger operators!
Surface intervals between dives were at least 45 minutes and sometimes and hour. We never felt rushed. Wall to Wall's prices
are certainly competitive and seemed a little lower than some of the larger operations. We plan to use this diving operation on our
next visit.
