Comments This trip was a postponement of a trip originally scheduled for the fall of 2020. It was the first time my wife and I had dived in warm water since late 2019 and for my wife, apart from a refresher session in a pool, it was her first time in scuba gear in 3 years.

Both the resort and dive staffs were friendly and accommodating. Our second floor, ocean-view room was clean, well kept and had an excellent A/C. Bags were taken directly to your room upon check-in, and were collected from outside your room after check-out. The quality of the meals was excellent and varied; they also made efforts to accommodate guests with special dietary needs.
The check-in for the diving was pretty easy, with most divers having supplied their information online prior to arrival. A short video covering the layout of the boats, how the diving is managed, and the boat’s safety features was shown in the bar area for arriving guests. Once you had taken your gear down to the boat, all you were responsible for the rest of the week were your mask, fins and computer, and rinsing out wet suits. Divers using nitrox had to analyze their tanks for the next day’s dives, but with 4 wall-mounted analyzers available, there wa ... Subscribe to get the full story.

Closest Airport Little Cayman Getting There American Airlines to Grand Cayman, Cayman Airways to Little Cayman. Currently, Cayman Air only had one aircraft flying into Little Cayman. If that is out of action, as happened on both the inbound and outbound trips, be prepared for delays, a boat ride to Cayman Brac to make a connecting flight, and possibly your checked in luggage not making it off the island the same day.

Same experience in December 2022. Good resort and dive operation but weather curtailed diving on Bloody Bay Wall and the trip to and from Little Cayman was a nightmare with members of our group late or stranded then arriving without luggage. Cayman Air needs to rethink service to the Sister Islands- never again for this group until that changes
