Comments The resort was very comfortable, a tad on the rustic side with excellent food and an open bar. The staff works hard at the resort and boat and the above water experience was very nice. The property is a mile or so from the big box dive operators and that was a positive for us.

Only two dives scheduled per day and their Newton dive boat is getting a bit long in the tooth. The boat is moored a short van ride from the resort.

We have not seen Little Cayman dive sites in over 30 years and were shocked at the almost total lack of fish greater than 1" in length and the very significant degradation of the reef. Plenty of macro to look at and that is about all there is to look at.

The diving is well suited for a beginner, the wall profiles of course don't change and visibility was great and that,sadly, was about the only positive thing to say about Little Cayman diving.
