Comments Cayman appeared to be over fished and over dove. The last day we went to the south side of the island to sites where they had just re-installed the mooring balls and that was the best diving we had.
I would come back to the hotel for the people and the service, in fact may try to get back to their photography week next spring. If you want to see lots of fish and pristine coral, I am not sure Grand Cayman is the place to do it.
