I just returned from a week at Conch Club and diving with Conch Club divers. Bill, Matt, and Claire are phenomenal. Bill is as good a captain as you'll ever have at the helm. And Matt and Claire are great dive masters. Thoroughly impressed and I cannot recommend them more highly. They do get out "early" but due to the time change and relatively early sunrises, we were up well in advance of departure times. Plenty of time for breakfast and a swim or morning snorkel.
Conch Club itself was a great place to stay. Nice, two-story condos with two pools (one for kids/families and one for adults). Right on the beach. Patty and her staff- especially Eton and Cassandra were top-notch. Eton even shared some of his home-grown produce and some Jamaican recipes which we greatly enjoyed with dinners we made. You can request a grill which they'll place right outside your condo. We had a great time grilling while the kids were in the pool. Do yourself a favor and make a reservation for dinner at Pirate's Point. Ridiculously amazing. Just amazing. The Hungry Iguana is pretty good too.
The things I really liked about CCDivers is that they do leave early and first, have a single-boat operation with full valet service, and are genuinely good people. Bill is also on the environmental board for Cayman so he has a compounded interest in preserving the environment of his home island.
The condo: the set-up is basic and very functional. Kitchen and main room on ground floor; covered patio and boardwalk right outside, just steps from the calm waters of South Hole Sound. We had a two-bedroom which had two full-sized beds in the bedroom on the leeward side and a nice master, with own bath, on the ocean side. New AC units and thermostats and- thankfully- ceiling fans. Many places lack ceiling fans and in the Caribbean, they really make a great difference. Master bedroom has its own deck overlooking the pool (depending on your unit's proximity) and/or the ocean.
There is some great snorkeling right off the shore at Conch Club (and everywhere around South Hole and all of LC). Just be aware there is boat traffic in the Sound and you will need to watch for boats and preferably use a marker. The mooring blocks for the boats have lots of sealife around them: starfish, stingrays, grouper, and more conch than you can count. Snorkel at Point of Sand too which is on the north-central part of LC. Turtles galore. Sometimes you'll see more snorkeling than you will with a group of noisy divers (though you can't beat scuba).
We simply had a fantastic time.
Some units are close to the pool, some aren't. The pools *can* get a little noisy (adults and k...
