We have a trip scheduled for 22 - 27 May but two of our divers were in the zone hit by the terrible storms 2 weeks ago. They would like to pull out to deal with community and family issues so we are trying to find replacements to fill the seats for them. We have chartered the whole boat and will have both recreational and technical divers on board for you to dive with depending o...

They are going to start booking Cayman Island trips and wanted someone to be able to have first hand knowledge of the isla...
