My family is newly certified and going in two weeks to Grand Cayman. We have a son with spina bifida that is HSA certified. We were wondering if any of you guys are familiar with a dive company down there that has experience with disabled divers. Also, any information someone might have about companies with boats that might be fairly easy to get to ie. not a ton of sand to push a chair thru between parking lot and water. Any suggestions or information is welcome.
