Comments This was our second time to dive with Ocean Frontiers and we were not disappointed. They store your gear, wash your gear, load and unload your gear onto the boat; if your not careful you will get spoiled. If you stay at Compass Point you literally roll out of bed and onto the boat and your gear is set up and ready. They took our request and got us to some of the dive sites we wanted to go to even in the rougher water. The winds were coming out of a different direction than normal and we dove on the north side most of the time. They were having some issues with a couple of the boats that needed some service, but still got us out diving. If you want to dive on your own you are more than welcome. They also gave me a larger tank (100) at my request as I really go through the air. You were allowed to dive your computer and extend your bottom time. Diving and staying on the East End is great because you get much more of the local food and culture. If you are looking for the business of Georgetown, then you don't want the East End. Cayman is trying to keep the lion fish from infiltrating the area and one of our DMs caught a lion fish on one of our dives. We love Ocean Frontiers and can't wait to go back again.
