Comments [None]This is the first place that we have been to that we said we would definitely be back. The water was calm and clear the entire time. It was the warmest water we have dived in. These were the best pre-dive briefings we have ever heard. They were very safety conscious. It is an excellent trip for beginners as it was very easy diving. Bring a mask to wear in Grand Cayman airport as it is a crowded zoo. Cayman Air charged us extra for luggage and made us check in our carryon. Then after charging us extra, the bags did not show up in Cayman Brac. They finally made it and Cayman Brac Beach Resort (CBBR) did an excellent job of locating them and bringing them to the resort. It was all inclusive and we thought the food was the healthiest we have had in the Caribbean. There was salad with lunch and dinner in the buffet along with a vegetable dish and choices of main courses. The ladders were excellent getting onto the boat. There were two ladders on the boat. There were a lot of fish and some groupers and barracuda. Several fish were following a sting ray as it was hunting. One grouper was very friendly and followed us around. Other people saw turtles but we did not.
