Comments this was our first trip to Little Caymans and the Southern Cross resort. The resort is very well managed, clean facilities and immediate attention to any problems in the facilities. Price includes three meals a day which were very good. While we had wind several says we still dove by choosing locations where the waves were reduced and safe. Dive staff was very helpful in getting "older" people get their gear out of the water. The boarding ladder and grab bars were very well located. The surface interval was on the boat but they provided towels,sliced oranges and health bars.we dive for 8 straight days and the vast majority of the divers were very experienced and fun. Dive master accompanied divers and were great at finding lots of good things to see. As a part of the dive briefing a map of the dive cite was carefully drawn which made for a good briefing. As a part of the briefing we were shown pictures out of one or more books of what to look for on the dive. Previous reports lists much of what you can expect to see but our most memorable was 5 beautiful eagle rays who gave us a real show for several minutes.
