Comments We had a great time with SCC. The boats were uncrowded. The DMs gave thorough briefings. They took a lot of time to tell you what to look for and did their utmost to show you things on the dive both large and small. They had the reef fish books on the boat which came in handy! The dives were leisurely and interesting. We enjoyed the tibbets wreck ( cost an extra 30 ) over on cayman brac. They swapped out your tanks for you. Water, oranges and granola served on the boat. Offered to play music from our iTunes if we wanted. Bloody bay did not dissapoint. We saw sharks turtles rays barracuda sea horse, huge lobster and crab, large schools, tiny juveniles and all the expected reef fish in abundance . Sponges and corals abound as well.

The club was very quiet the week we were there and the staff were all wonderful and accommodating. They set us up for dinner where ever we asked. Gabriel is the super creative bartender. There was plenty of food and good choices. Though you could order off menu if something didn't suit you. We walked away from every meal stuffed!
The rooms have no phone, no tv, and no wifi ( there is wifi in the lobby/bar). But they do have amazing views and a beautiful beach ( though not really swim a le because of the turtle grass). Every day of our stay was peaceful and gorgeous. Only downside is the all inclusive doesn't include gear rental or bar drinks and even without that is pretty pricey. We did love it and would go back again.
