Comments This was our dive shop's( Wateree Dive Center, Columbia, S.C.) 5th trip to Little Cayman Beach Resort. Getting there is always an adventure anytime you fly Cayman Air. The resort is clean, and well manicured. The rooms were clean and comfortable.The food was adequate, plentiful and quite good. The food was better now than the last two times we were there (2001 and 2004). The Bar is OK, with pricey drinks and beer, but good, nonetheless. There was plenty of time for eating and getting ready to dive without being rushed to get to the boat.

The dive operation is excellent.Briefings were well presented and the maps/diagrams by the staff were most helpful. The boats are Newton 46's and were clean, well maintained and we had no problems during the week. The staff would allow you to dive your own profile, but were available to show critters to those interested. Phil and Adrienne were excellent and I would ask for them again. We saw turles about every dive, and also Reef sharks and Nurse sharks also. Rays were seen frequently. It was good to see more Grouper now than in the past two visits. The viz was anywhere from 70 feet on the reef to 125 feet on the wall. There was no current and bottom times were adequate and we felt not rushed at all.

LCBR and Reef Divers are a great combination and we look forward to returning in a year or two. Grand Cayman's airport is always a hassle, but that's the only way to get to Little Cayman. I'll put up with the hassle to get there again. This is a great place to dive and stay in a great marine park.
