Comments The last time in Little Cayman was 1994. Very little has changed on the island other than some updating of various resort facilities. However, one does not go to Little Cayman for any thing other than diving! The diving around Little Cayman is primarily wall diving. There was no current and the walls were in good shape with lots of swim-throughs. Little Cayman Beach Resort was in very good shape. The rooms are large and maintained well. The 42' Newton boats were very spacious and easy to get back up the ladders. The dive staff is competent and had great personalities. They get your gear the first morning of the first dive and take care of your BC and regulator from there on out. You will be given a mess bag to keep the rest of your stuff in. Everything other than BC/reg is taken with you after each day's diving. I was surprised that on our last day/dive we were told to take our gear and clean it ourselves. Hmmm, not the best way to end a trip that you will be tipping on. Cayman Air Express was fine on schedules, but US Air was the pits and didn't care! Will never fly them again (email me for details). The food was buffet style and the chef (Anthony) did a good job with wonderful desserts!
If you are looking for the laidback, no current, easy diving with routine sights, this is the place to go and peal away the stress.
