Comments We had a great trip. My 14 yo son got certified with their instructors and he was very pleased with the instruction and we were happy with how he was prepared. Boat dives were well-narrated and the dive plans were good. Water clarity was not up to the standards we are used to for the Caymans but was okay. Plenty of corals and tropical fish, not many pelagics, rays, or turtles although we saw a few of the latter. Shore diving was fun - easy to navigate and plenty to see. The dive operation was very good and well-organized. We were happy with the rooms which are good for dive operations and the restaurant had very good food. We would have been happier with a full meal plan as it felt as if we were being nickled and dimed a bit. Unfortunately, it appears that this operation does not offer one. It would have raised the review a whole star if it would have and I would recommend Sunset House to our dive group if it was available. Cayman restaurants are expensive to visit.
