Comments Unfortunately, we were on Capt. Sam's last voyage-he is not people friendly and was avoided whenever possible. Fortunately, Capt. Phil was also there and helped greatly. Capt. Phil is very professional and friendly, truly concerned for making our week memorable. Capt. Sam should have been keel hauled! The rest of the crew was really great - Jon especially was very approachable and truly did everything to help us have a good time. We appreciate your efforts Jon!

Aside from the pall of Capt. Sam, we were not impressed with the diving. Because of weather conditions it was not possible to leave Grand Cayman-the diving around G. Cayman was truly horrible!!! We couldn't even make it to Sting Ray City (we suspected this was not weather related at all, but some bug up Sam's butt). This was my second trip to Caymans and the first time I loved it, but we will most likely never return.

In addition to the wonderful Capt. Phil and his crew, what really saved the week was that we had a wonderful group of divers on board-all lovely people that we hope to dive with again!
