DON FOSTER'S DIVE CAYMAN is a full-service dive operation in the Cayman Islands. Established on Grand Cayman since 1982 and located on the waterfront 3/10 mile south of George Town, Don Foster’s is fronted by Casuarina Point Reef, where you will find excellent shore diving and snorkeling. We have a large dive shop offering dive and snorkel gear rental, t-shirts, souvenirs, drinks and snacks. Our boat diving package rates are the lowest on the island and we will work with you to make your diving experience memorable, whether you want to dive a lot (check out 20-tank special) or a little. Don Foster’s Dive is the place to go for experience, excellent customer service and a great dive experience.

Our family (with kids) went snorkeling and Don and Dean were awesome! They were very informative, showed and explained exactly all the steps (without boring us more experienced snorkelers), pointed out interesting fish and explained their habits and more. For this homeschooling mom, I loved it! The kids got some great lessons in Grand Cayman history as well as aquatic... More

This experience gave my husband and me a great boat with a great staff. They took us to an amazing part of the water for snorkeling and show a good amount of patience for those (like me) fearful of the water. Will see again!!

After being badly let down by Thomson Cruises - who cancelled my planned dives with an unknown operator at very short notice I managed to get, with the help of Divers Down, a place on Don Fosters Dive Boat on Monday morning 23rd March 2015. In the office Sergio simply sorted out the paperwork, what kit I needed and without... More

Visit was December 24/14, which was an extremely busy day (7 cruises docking) with a lot of wind - my boyfriend and I were nervous that we would not be able to do part of our Stingray Bay/ Snorkeling excursion. However, we were in luck and boarded the Emerald Eyes with no problems after the short cab ride to the... More

We were on a cruise when we booked this excursion. Issues out of our control caused us to arrive late; however, the staff handled it with ease, taking care of everything. Before the first dive, I was a little nervous because it'd been a couple years since I'd last dived, and my husband mentioned this to one of the dive... More

We were on the Holland America Line EURODAM (great cruise!) and diving with Don Foster was a shore excursion. Diving was beautiful, DMs Danni and Jason (they're engaged!) were very attentive to our group of 10. Equipment was top notch and price was fair. Danni and Jason are very safety conscious. I am fairly experienced and I learned from them.... More

We were a last minute booking (for a group of about 12) because another company let us down, and I have to say that all the staff were really accommodating given that we probably ruined their Sunday afternoon. The booking in process was fast and efficient (given the size of the group), the rental gear is in very good condition,... More

We are a family of 4 - parents and 2 "kids" in their 20's. It can be difficult to find activities the entire family can enjoy but this was definitely one of them.
