Comments The boat is in very good condition, and as there were only 11 of a possible 18 passengers aboard I was able to have my own cabin. I must start out by giving highest possible praise to Andrew, the cook, for his continually outstanding meals. A Mexican lunch, a great seafood Jambalaya dinner, custom breakfasts, and great between dive snacks. Tons of great food. Stingray beer was on tap for after the last dive, and your choice of a pretty darn decent Merlot or Chardonnay was available with dinner. The Merlot put me in bed pretty early a couple of nights!

The weather put us on the South side of Grand Cayman for the week. I've been going to the Caymans for about 20 years, but this was the first time to extensively dive the south side. It was good enough and pristine enough that I didnt really miss Little Cayman. Lots of big and little fish (including tarpon), morays, turtles, stingrays, eagle rays, and tons of macro subjects. I give the CAIV a rock solid 5 star rating for food, drink, diving convenience, cleanliness, and especially the great crew.

Thanks to Capt. Tom, Andrew, Nick, Davis, Fergie and Jim for the great time. I will be back.
