Comments I knew about Valet Diving having been at Cayman Brac. For an old diver, it was great. Accomodations were very good. Dive operation and boats very good. Easy NITROX. NO tanks over 80 cf. I needed the extra air.

Here's the But... it is not Cobalt's fault and it may not be permanent, BUT there were very FEW fish over medium size. And almost no big critters, like sharks and rays.

The best Stingray City experience I have ever had!

Fairly easy to get onboard (some swell at the dock). Well run div ops.
Very good rinse and drying room.
