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.

One of the coolest experiences of my life. The employees were very personal and struck an excellent balance of safety and fun.

The two tank dive was amazing! Had so much fun for my first dive experience after getting certified. The staff was really helpful and the dive sites were great.

My wife and I celebrated our 1 year anniversary on a Carnival cruise ship. Grand Cayman was one of the stops and Don Foster's Dive Cayman was one of the excursions. From the ship to the boat it went very smooth. When you depart the ship it can be a bit chaotic, especially using a tender boat as we had... More

It just doesn't get any better than Don Fosters. Training, equipment, shore dives or boat dives they can do it all. I've dove with this professional operation on three different cruise ship visits and have been more impressed each time. Wouldn't consider any other diveshop in Grand Cayman, Don Fosters has them all beat. Thanks again for ANOTHER great dive... More

My cousin booked the Emerald Eyes for a private function to see the sting rays and also starfish. Sergio was as calm as could be driving the boat around with everyone dancing and music thumping. The crew Nicola & Mat are two of the most polite, helpful and entertaining people in Grand Cayman. It is a credit to this company... More

Hi Jeff, You mentioned your cruise you dived 8 times. Which destinations did you stop to be able to dive 8 times and which port did you leave from on which line? Sounds heavenly. We go out of Galveston and hit Cozumel, Belize and Roatan. This time we are going to Grand Cayman and Jamacia and Cozumel. I usually don't... More
