Comments Cayman Diving Lodge is away from the hustle of 7 mile beach and we loved it. Could dive your own profile with computers. Accommodations were not the newest but the rooms were clean and the AC worked great. Food was beyond excellent and served family style. There were fresh baked cookies daily.

Jim takes the time to meet everyone and makes them feel at home. You feel like part of the family during your stay. DM are all experienced, friendly, have worked for CDL for years and clearly love what they do. The boats were spacious and clean, O2 on board. Divers dont have to touch their gear all week. DM guided the dives or let you do your own profile. The DM always took time to point out interesting things on the dives. The diving was relaxing and fairly easy. Not the pronounced walls like on little cayman but the coral was healthy with lots of reef fish, rays, tarpon and turtles. We saw a few sharks during the week also. I had several 65+ minute dives. We had already done 7 mile beach and this was the perfect place for doing 3 tanks a day and relaxing. We thought the operation and the staff were the best of the 6 we have used on the caymans. Bottom Line: We will be return customers.
