Comments Our third trip was just as much fun and enjoyable as the others. Although Gladys is no longer with us, Susan Howard was a wonderful hostess. She routinely joined in with guests and is a demon at Mexican Train dominoes. The kitchen was outstanding as it has been in the past. Diane, the singing chef, brought liveliness and fun to each delicious meal.
The dive staff was really clicking on this trip having The Yellow Rose in tip top shape and ready to go on each day. Site briefings were relatively detailed in preparing for the dive. The variety of critters was as good this time as any. Whether in the sand or on the reef there were many different things to observe. In addition, turtles were present on most if not all dives. Although weather kept us on the south side for a few days it gave some us our first dives in that area, but we were more than happy to return to Bloody and Jackson Bays when we were able. Like many of the others this week, we are already signed up for next spring.
One note of caution regarding Cayman Airways, the local airline that handles the leg from GCM to LYB. Make sure that you allow at least 2 hours layover time in each direction to allow for immigration and as the line at check-in can be long. Also, CA closes their counter an hour before flights.
