Owner description: 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.

While any review of a snorkeling trip is largely predicated on the location and weather, the fact remains that Don Foster's Diving provided a wonderful experience. My wife and I have been on other snorkel adventures where the majority of the time is spent getting to and from the snorkel site. Not so in Grand Cayman. The reef and the... More

We just returned from Grand Cayman, and had an absolutely perfect experience on this excursion! The crew on our boat was wonderful, and our time with these awe inspiring rays was one of the highlights of any trip we've taken!!! We were very well instructed, and our safety, as well as the safety of the rays was always the crew's... More

Wow! It is great to hear that you had such a wonderful time. Going to Stingray City really is a magical experience and it sounds like you now have a first hand account of how amazing the creatures can be. While it is important to the Captain and his crew to help everyone have fun, it is of utmost importance... More

Captain Jack - Thanks for your review! We always appreciate feedback from divers who have had experiences that allow for them to compare to their time with us. While Grand Cayman is, as you mentioned, naturally a beautiful diving destination, we do strive to help our divers feel like they can kick back and relax on vacation. Additionally, our divemasters...

First shore dive experience was a good one. Entrance is from a dock which is nicer than wading in and fighting waves. The shore dive experience gets you in and out quickly because you don;t have to allow time for the boat ride, but you do need to be able to carry and setup your own gear (which is available... More

I was very nervous, and I didn't think I would make it past the instruction pool! But, our instructor, Joaquin, was very patient, and I would recommend him to anyone! We were able to go to depths up to 39 feet, and we completed a 47 minute dive! It was a bit scary and unnatural for me, but I was... More

Thanks, Wendy for your kind review. Joaquin and all of our great instructors are experienced in showing our new divers that diving is fun and safe and they can calm the most jittery nerves. We're glad that you got to enjoy this experience and we know there is nothing else quite as amazing as diving. More

We booked this dive vacation to celebrate my birthday and we were pleased to find that Don Fosters is one of the few dive shops on the island that operates at full capacity even in the slow season. For the last two days of diving we had the whole boat to ourselves, was pretty much like a private charter, on... More

This is the first time I went scuba diving and the guys that works here are GREAT! They took their time to show you what you need to do. Then they let you practice it in the "small" pool before "jumping into the big pool". Once you are undered, the guys will stick with you the whole time to ensure... More

Went on the Barrier Reef snorkel excursion and had a great time. Captain John and Lee put us on a good spot. Lee was out in the water the entire time watching everyone while Capt. John constantly watched from the boat. They were very safety and environment conscious. Would recommend for sure!

We were on a cruise ship and booked them through the cruise. The staff were very friendly and it was well organized. It was great for old and new divers alike. Definitely recommend going with Don Foster.
