Comments Great resort and dive operation. We have been to Little Cayman Dive Resort twice and prefer this place. It is 20-30% more expensive at SCC but its worth it for the quiet laid back experience. Food is great and varied everyday. I was a little annoyed that soft drinks were not included considering the price you pay here. Alcohol is expensive, so bring some from home. Dive operation was great. Dive guides are really good. Didn't care for the follow the leader style diving as we are not used to that style. Many in our group liked that they didn't have to search for the boat. Expensive trip from the west coast. We could go to the south pacific for less money. Probably the best Caribbean diving around though- highly recommend if you don't mind guided diving
