Comments Great visit; cannot control the weather, but what the heck. Nice room, well maintained and good maid service. Great food; custom breakfast, casual lunch and terrific dinner. Cliff still rules breakfast and lunch. Check in/check out went smooth. Water temp 77-78; water was choppy, windy during the week. Dive operations were very good, our DM, Scott, did a nice job with his knowledge, briefings and patience. With the photographers, he was very good. Got to dive our plan except for trip to Little Cayman, which is understandable. Boats in good shape; dive shack/dock still being replaced. Coral is recovering; saw all the usual critters, but seemed to see lots of turtles, rays also. Had a diver incident on Little Cayman trip, but the crew and Max, the general manager, got the diver to medical help and to Grand Cayman as quickly as possible, where a full recovery was made. I look forward to a return trip
