2019 Carefree Cayman:
Our trip officially began on November 30th. Air transportation was not included in this package but many options for getting there were made available. Participants could opt for a direct flight to Grand Cayman and then hop over on Cayman Airways or depart from Miami International Airport on Cayman Airways directly to Little Cayman by way of a quick stop in Cayman Brac.
Once there, everyone registered into our rooms, settled in, checked in at the dive shop and then relaxed at the bar or by the pool with some island cocktails. This is when "Island Time" officially took hold. Our diving adventure began early the next morning and no one went all out on the frst night as this small little piece of paradise has a lot to offer us over the seven nights of our stay.
The Carefree Cayman package included accomodations at The Little Cayman Beach Resort (dbl occupancy), six days of 2-tank morning boat dives, five afternoon single-tank dives tanks(air), weights and complimentary use of dive computers and all the associated taxes that the Caymanian government can muster up. Together this made for a great seventeen-dive experience to one of the most awesome places in the Caribbean.
The package also included the R/T transfers from the Little Cayman airport, complimentary WiFi, welcome rum punch Manager's cocktail reception, Resort fees, taxes and gratuities - except dive gratuities which were NOT included. Alcholic drinks were not included as part of the package but that never stopped us before.... whoo hoo! Besides we had vouchers galore
Incidentally, we held a celebration party on one of the evenings and the rumor is that Jim's famous 7SD Island Punch was reborn. That may not mean much to some but it certainly will bring back memories for some of the alumni. Be afraid - Be very afraid!
(As always, we planned for at least 24 hours after the completion of our last dives prior to boarding our planes back home. That's it in a nut shell.... Keep an eye out for our upcoming trips. We've never let anyone down in making some of the best trips possible and we plan to continue that track record.)
