1.) Wall-to-Wall Diving Co.:

Wall-to-Wall was recommended to us by "Indigo divers" (who are
firm Undercurrent favorites and were fully booked), and we dived
with Wall-to-Wall for 8 days in a row. Wall-to-Wall have two
dive boats, both are spacious (especially their primary boat,
the Chelonia), and are generally limited to 6 divers. They (and
several others including "Indigo Divers" and "Off the Wall")
operate out of the Lobster Pot Dive shop which has ample parking
and easy access. They will also pick people up who are staying
along 7-mile beach, although we were further afield in Bodden
Town, and had a rental car. When doing multiple days of dives,
you can leave your gear on the boat and they will clean it up
for you after each day and have it ready for you the next.

Unfortunately for us, all our baggage including our dive gear

Hi Marshall, you mention great sites on the West and South Sides, did you get to the North Wall this time of year?

Wall-to-Wall does not operate on the North side and as this was our first trip to Grand Caymans, we opted to stick with the areas in which they dive. We did drive up to see the north side and it appeared to be quite calm and divable.

Thanks, my family dived with Giles and Deanna and Wall to Wall in 2002, when they were located in the Yacht Club, with easy access to the North Wall. Chelonia was brand new back then.

Glyn (my dive partner) tells me that Wall-to-Wall do run trips to the north wall in the summer. Just not in the winter when apparently the north tends to be a bit rough.
