Comments DIVING: OVERALL GREAT DIVING!
Awesome walls, like Randy's Gazebo and Ringer's wall.
Also plenty of more shallow dives with lots of light and fish. No to little current, very easy diving. This year we did notice some bleaching of certain types of coral and some green algae on the walls, that we did not see 5 years ago. We noticed almost zero impact on the reefs by the 2008 hurricanes. It's still great Caribbean diving. We did see Lion fish on a couple of dives on the South (hotel) side of the island.

DIVE OPERATION: TOP NOTCH!
Very professional, safety cautious and yet fun. It does not get any better. Alex, Ben and Craig took great care of us. Excellent dive briefings. You can do guided dives or do your own profile in a buddy pair.

RESORT: EXCELLENT!
The rooms have been renovated, we stayed in an ocean front. As compared to 5 years ago: the rooms, the dining room service and the front desk service have gone from so-so to excellent now! The food is still good, the deserts are awesome. We had the best moist Thanksgiving Turkey ever.... The bartender is the great!

CAYMAN AIRWAYS: VERY FLEXIBLE!
They got us from Grand Cayman to Little Cayman on a much earlier flight than booked. Part of the luggage arrived some hours later, no problem. On the way back we had to send luggage ahead, 1/2 day early, due to heavy departure volumes. Your dive gear won't be completely dry... but you will have all the luggage on the plane to the US.

OVERALL: A GREAT TRIP, WE WILL BE BACK!
