Comments Our small group of 7, 6 are divers, went to Little Cayman in November 2014. We flew into Grand

Cayman, then boarded a twin Otter for the 40 minute flight to Little Cayman. Upon arriving, we were

met by our driver who drove us the 1 mile or so to the Conch Club condos.

Accommodations were spacious in the 2 Ė 2 BR/2.5 BA condos we rented. The living room, kitchen,

dining area and 1⁄2 bathroom are downstairs. Upstairs were the 2 BRs, each with a King bed in the

master bedroom and either 2 twins or 2 full in the others. Each condo is individually owned, so they all

vary in what they have and how they are decorated.

After we got checked in, someone from Conch Club divers met us to go over paperwork and explain how

the diving would work for the next 6 days. Basically, meet at the dive pier down by Little Cayman Beach

Resort, and boat by 7:20, get fins, mask and wet suit from the lockers, and board the boat. All BCDs &

regs are kept overnight on the boat and ready for the next day of diving.

The boat, Sea-Esta left the dock fairly promptly at 7:30 and headed to either the South side (5-10 minute

rides) or the North side and Bloody Bay wall (about 25-30 minutes) depending on weather conditions.

Due to recent winds, we dove the South the first 3 days, plus the second dive on the 4

dives were done on the North shore. By the end of the week when the winds subsided, the visibility and

sites were much better than the start of the week.

On the dives, we saw the normal cast of characters for the Caribbean, including some nurse sharks,

eagle rays, stingrays, and some lettuce leaf slugs. There were quite a few grouper in the large, 3-4 foot

range on all the dives. All seemed very friendly and would usually follow us for the whole dive. Not that

many lion fish either. Worse dive we saw 4 or 5. Most dives there were maybe 1 or 2. This was

encouraging that the population seems to not be expanding.

There is plenty of cold water on board the boat, but nothing else. No fruit, candy or snacks. Dives are

done either on your own, or follow the dive master for about 25-30 minutes, then you can stay until 45

minutes on the first dive and 50 minutes on the second. Donít believe they really enforced this since

most people were back within these limits. I am pretty sure an hour limit would be tops before they

would remind you of their limits.

There is only one grocery store, 1 liquor store, 1 ATM, etc. on the island. They are about a 20 minute

walk from the condos. Prices are very high, even by Caribbean standards due to no competition. There

are also 4 or 5 restaurants nearby which have bar menus which are reasonably priced. The Southern

Cross Club, which is about a 5 minute walk from Conch Club has different meals each night. Pasta night

was reasonably priced and excellent, as was their luncheon buffet we went to one day. Little Cayman

Beach Resort where the dive boat is docked also has an extensive bar menu where we ate a number of

dinners and were quite happy.

All in all, it was a good week, and we all agreed it would be good for a return trip.
