Our first trip to Pirates Point was in 1993. Our last, December 2011. Somewhere in between, for some reason I can’t remember, we missed a year. That makes eighteen trips and we will be back in July. I guess that should say it all. How many places have you been to that you yearn to return year after year after year? Pirates Point is that kind of place. Not fancy, comfortable. Not staff, almost family. If you can’t enjoy this place, my guess is you should stay home. Great food, thank you Jeff and Dianne. Great diving, thank you Gay, Martha, Michelle, Bob and Mike. Beautiful location. Laid back island. Don’t forget Ed, the guy behind the scenes that keeps everything running. Pirates Point concentrates on the fact that this is your vacation and it’s all about you. I for one don’t want to get up at six to meet a seven o’clock dive boat. PP leaves around nine island time for a two tank dive. No banging on the ladder at forty minutes to signal the end of your dive. Some do 90 minute dives although most seem to conform to an unwritten rule of a sixty some minute dive. Lunch is when the dive boat gets back, not when it has to get back. Did I mention “all inclusive” including the bar. Rare in the Caymans, but you know your cost when you sign up. I confirmed that value when I paid around six dollars for a beer down the street. In all fairness, I must mention one negative. Expect to gain three or four pounds over the course of your stay!!
