Comments The good - service of everyone involved in the dive operation. All worked together to get divers setup on the boats (bring all gear down and setup on tanks). Dive briefings were effective - accurate and of the right length of time. Boat turnaround was good - getting empties off and filled tanks on, gear unloading for those not diving in the afternoon. Staff were professional yet able to make us feel comfortable.

Cost of being in Grand Cayman is high to be sure. Accommodations at Compass Point (joint operation with Ocean Frontiers) included a kitchen, so we bought groceries and made our own meals most of the time - this worked out very well for us. Restaurants are nearby when you need something different.
