Comments I still think Little Cayman diving on Bloody Bay and Jackson Bay walls is as good as it gets in the Caribbean. The grouper spawning gounds have been protected for a few years and there are lots of them - Nassau, black, tiger, yellow fin, etc. There are also plenty of rays - southern stig, eagle, and yellow spotted - and turtles. Sharks were seen by somebody on most dives.

Pirates Point, a small resort with a capacity of 20, still offers fine dining - three generous and tasty meals every day. The staff is friendly and very helpful. The accomodations aren't luxurious, but they're clean and reasonably spacious. The dive boat is a big twin diesel, easily accomodating a full complement (20) of divers if necessary. An instructor is in the water on every dive and leads every dive, but it's not mandatory to follow him/her.
