Comments This year, we decide to go diving that did not require 30 hours or more of flying … our choice was the East End of Grand Cayman at the Compass Point Resort/Ocean Frontiers. We booked for 10 nights and 9 days of diving (2 morning dives per day) in a single room condominium facing the ocean. Our package included 2 morning dives for 9 days, breakfast and a rental car with Avis

I've dived with them on four trips. You put your gear in a crate and they rinsed it, hung up the wet suits, and brought everything back to the boat the next morning. Didn't you take advantage of this service or has this changed since I was there in March 2018?

Yes, they still do this.
