Comments We spent a week at Cobalt Coast Resort on Grand Cayman for Kids Sea Camp. It was our dive trip with our 4 year old daughter. Kids Sea Camp allows parents to go diving while the kids go snorkeling or other activities or get junior scuba certifications, depending upon their age.

Cobalt Coast is a wonderful, small resort on the northwest coast of Grand Cayman. The rooms were very nice and spacious and the food was excellent and varied.

The operation at Dive Tech was one of the best we have encountered. The staff was very organized, had excellent facilities, were personable and knowledgeable and promoted a strong sense of safety while allowing every diver to dive his own profile.

I was surprised at how outstanding the condition of the reef was in Grand Cayman - very large coral formations were everywhere and fish life was abundant. We didn't see as many turtles as I expected, but they were around. We did see a number or rays on many dives and we saw a lot of juvenile fish of all kinds, including several types of eel.

Finally, Kids Sea Camp was amazingly well run. The activities were very well organized and the supervision of the kids was excellent. The staff knows children well and I was especially impressed at how well they were able to teach the young ones to be comfortable with a mask and snorkel or regulator while also being able to handle young teenagers. Clearly, the staff are carefully selected.

All in all, there was nothing I would change on this trip. The diving was fabulous and the operations of all three entities were first class.
