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.

I went to two different sites by boat with them. All of the equipment worked. The tanks had plenty of air in them. The dive briefings were coherent. I saw some beautiful unspoiled places along the wall, lobsters, sting rays, and many fishes. I had dived in the Caymans before without seeing anything nearly as good. I highly recommend these...

This was my 2nd time diving with Don Foster's (1st time was through Royal Caribbean) and it was great! We booked everything in advance via email and all was taken care of including transportation. My son and I dove Kittiwake, Stingray City and two 2 tank dives over 4 days. Great easy to work with staff! Will be back in... More

This shore dive is just okay, and the staff at the shop onsite for tank rental are not as friendly as other shops on the island. Suggest diving just up the street either way at Eden Rock or Sunset House. Can walk here from cruise terminal if you're interested, but Eden Rock/Devil's Grotto is a shorter walk and better dive-sometimes... More

I dove in several countries with different operators and I can tell you that Don Foster is one of the best. These people are serious and your safety is their priority.

I enjoyed a two tank dive excursion I booked through a Carnival Cruise. I plan on returning to Grand Cayman and spending a lot more time diving than a cruise ship excursion allows. When I return I will be diving with this shop.

Beautiful dives on a nice, well appointed, roomy boat with fun, knowledgeable and SAFE dive masters. Our group of 8 divers had 3 staff onboard, 2 went down with us for each dive. My rental included a dive computer, a very nice touch since it is easy to underestimate the depth when the water is that clear. They have it... More

On a boat dive I was asked what I wanted to see and replied that I wanted to see the nurse shark that had been patrolling the area. I was half joking, as there is no way to know where a specific shark will be at any given time. Still they gave it their best shot and sure enough, at... More

In the end, when I go back to Grand Caymen I will happily take a boat dive with these people. I had originally planned to come with another couple whom are not divers. They were going to take my non-diving wife somewhere else, but they have to cancel, so I picked this place for a single tank shore dive through... More

Awesome customer service. Staff is amazing. Best deal in town. I would definitely recommend it. It was my first ever open water dive and our guide Jonathan was outstanding. Everyone on the boat was friendly and fun. I am glad I chose Don Foster for my diving experience. If I come back, this is the dive shop I would use.
