Comments This was our third visit to the Brac in 7 years. Weather was spectacular, with only a light breeze. Almost no current or surge. Boat rides very short except for one day we went over to Little Cayman to dive Bloody Bay Wall.
Dive operations excellent. Good briefings as to topography and what we could expect to see. You could follow the Dive Master or do your own thing. Depth and time limits loosely enforced. We dove Nitrox and are good on air so we would go in first and come back to explore under the boat at the end of the dive. When everyone else was back on board, we would end our dive so people didn't have to wait for us. Okay with the Dive Masters. Great boats, not very crowded. This is the epitome of "valet diving." You put your gear outside your room in a provided net bag the first night and you never have to handle it again until the end of your trip. We did 17 dives in one week, two morning dives and one afternoon dive.
The resort is clean and nice, with large rooms. There is a pool and hot tub, with spa facilities on site. My wife said she got the best massage she had ever experienced. The food is spectacular. Buffet for every meal with three or more dinner entries per night. It ranged from sliced prime rib to lobster thermidor.
