Comments My name is Nick. I'm 15 years old and this is my second trip to Pirates Point. The first trip was amazing, but the second trip was even better. The food was like a Thanksgiving dinner - except it is every night. Just describing the food would make your mouth water. The accommodations make you feel like you are in a home away from home. I've only gone diving for 4 years and I thought that I had seen it all the first time, or so I thought! As the Yellow Rose pulled around past the tip of the island... the blue sky and the blue water just tugged at my heart. As soon as we stopped I knew it would be a good dive because I had all ready seen the schools of fish through the clear blue water. In some places, the water fluctuates from cold to hot and visa versa, but not Little Cayman water! It felt like bath water, except for one amazing dive with a thermocline... The critters were unbelievable; we actually saw some lobsters mating. The night dives were equally fantastic!! Little Cayman was my first night dive and I saw 4 octopi. Overall, Little Cayman is the best place to go to feel at ease, like a true vacation should!! Eating and diving with people who soon become your friends is great. We met nice people from all over the country. We hope to visit Little Cayman and Pirates Point every year!
