Comments This is true valet diving. The crews are experienced, knowledgeable, and always willing to answer a question or lend a hand. Always drinks, fresh fruit, and snacks on board. Towels furnished on board. Photo table and rinse buckets plus fresh water hose. Large friendly grouper, barracuda, shark, and on most every dive turtles. Lionfish eradication is obviously working. Frank Tibbett's destroyer wreck is totally cool. two dives in morning and one in afternoon. Very limited beach diving. Resort is clean and modern facilities. Food is tasty and plentiful with barbecue specialty night. One speed bicycles are free. Two liquor stores but all alcohol very expensive (Bring it with you but you cannot buy duty free in GC). Several restaurants with great local food in addition to resort kitchen. Cayman dollar is worth more than US dollar so watch price of stuff. Major down side is that you will not want to leave... (NOTE: Pool and bar currently under renovation and scheduled finished by December.) Writing this makes me want to go back right now....
