Comments Little Cayman Beach Resort and Reef Divers did an incredible job to make our dive experience outstanding. Our family of three included one experienced diver, one hesitant diver and one new diver and all of us finished the week wanting to return. The resort recently remodeled and the rooms were nicely furnished with a very large screen TV which we used to watch movies. Everything was nicely appointed and new. The food was amazing- three buffet meals a day with 5 or 6 salad options and 5 or 6 entrees. There was always fish, meat or vegetarian options at every meal. We noticed too that there were several people with strange food allergies which they went out of their way to accomodate. There was always fresh fruit and lots of yummy desserts. Don't expect to lose weight here. I can't say enough about the dive operations. The instruction was first rate. Our son completed the advanced open water and a few of the specialities and all three of us completed Nitrox training. They had this special where you got free Nitrox tanks for the week if you completed your Nitrox training there. They work the instruction around the dive schedule so you never have to miss a dive. The dive operation was always smooth. You are assigned a boat and you stay with that boat for the week. There were never more than 16 divers and the boat was plenty big enough to accomodate everyone. This is concierge diving at the highest level. You go to the back of the boat with your mask and fins and they carry your tank over to you. No worries about slipping on the boat with a big tank. The staff was always there to help with equipment issues and did their best to make certain that everyone was ready. Before each dive we received a briefing with a drawing of the dive site and recommendations about how to dive it. You can go on your own or with the dive master (there is always one in the water) if you want. There is always someone on board as well should you need assistance during the dive. What can you say about Little Cayman diving except that it is fantastic. The reef is very healthy with lots of beautiful soft corals. The groupers were plentiful and big, lots of sea turtles and lobsters. You will not be disappointed by Bloody Bay Wall. We did 3 dives a day. Two in the morning, with the first generally on the wall to 110 feet (they have a 110 foot restriction)The second dive generally no deeper than 60. Then on to lunch and then an afternoon dive. There is also an option for a night dive and a wreck dive at Cayman Brac if the weather permits. I can't think of anything but good comments about the resort and the dive operations. They did a fabulous job and I would definitely go back again soon.
