My son and I visited Grand Cayman on a RCCL Cruise in April and booked a private half day dive with Captain Mark to do my son's first two PADI open water dives. There was some initial confusion over the pick-up arranagements, but the girls at the information desk where we were told to meet them were able to get it resolved with Mark's staff pretty quick. With the mix-up we didn't get a chance to grab lunch so it was great that Mark had water and homemade brownies on the boat to feed a starving teenager.
The seas were fairly rough the day we dove and with my son doing his first two dives and me not diving in three years other than a recent pool refresher, Mark smartly kept us inside the reef. We had two great dives completing his check-out as well as having enough bottom time to see stingrays, plenty of fish, and some nice coral heads.
I was impressed with the time Mark put into the oral test and gear review he gave as part of the checkout and he was as thorough under the water. We're hoping to get back to Grand Cayman soon to finish his open water dives and see more of the reefs.
