Comments 1st, let me say that staying at Club Med was a disappointment. The resort has gone downhill from where it used to be. You get what you pay for... we had a great deal on two weeks... that should have given us a clue. Oh well. Rumor has it that the property has been sold and is being short-term leased back, and that's why no repairs or renovations are being made. Rumor also has it that it's going to be demolished and a new high-rise built. It does have a great location on Grace Bay, so this wouldn't surprise me at all.

2nd, Flamingo Divers is GREAT! I can't recommend them highly enough. Small groups, no "cluster" diving. Mickey and Jayne are VERY personable, fun and easy going, yet run a tight operation. They would pick us up at our resort in the morning and bring us to the dock. They stored our gear for us the entire time and set everything up every morning. We barely had to lift a finger!
And while the dives were "led" by one or the other, it was easy diving. They are very safety conscious and very environmentally conscious.
This was our second time diving with them - the last time was ten years ago. If we ever go back to T&C, we will definitely dive with Flamingo again.
