Waited along time before my wife and I went to the Caymans because of the
cost.  Had the most fantastic experience working with Cathy Church.  Cathy
and Herb, her husband, are great people.

The weather was bad most of the time.  When we were able to go to any of
the really good sites on the south side someone else was there every time
so every dive was down-graded.  Because of a tropical storm we were able to
dive from the Mako on the north side for 3 days which is the best diving on
the island.  The problem was extremely short surface intervals (30 to 40
minutes) after long deep dives resulting in less than 10 minute bottem
times at 65ft. on the second dive. You had to go that deep just to hit

We started out with 12, but by the third day my wife and I and one other
diver were the only ones left because everyone else went in to no
decompression.  When we asked for longer s.i. We were told "we all had
computers and keep them in the green".  The reason being that getting
back to lungh was top priority.  Said something to the manager and got the
usual dance. 

Because of some heavy lifting restrictions we asked for some help with the
tanks and gear. Not until the very last dive did anybody offer help. A
couple of the guys on the boat were pretty good.

The shore diving was available only 1 day because of weather.

Even though we thought the resort was pretty pricey we went based the the
glowing praises from the maager at a dive show.  We were very disappointed.
Maybe the should change the motto "for divers, run by divers".

I have been diving off and on since the 1967 and a current padi instructer.
My wife has been diving for 15 years. We know you have to take the good
with the bad on diving vacations.  That is why I have never submitted
comments to any publication before this.
