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.

For a cruise excursion, I was concerned there would be a lot of people on this dive. Turned out that it was only two of us, so we got the private treatment - yatzee! It was a great way to refresh my skills (it had been over 3 years since my last dive). Lots of beautiful marine life, and not... More

Went on the Emerald Eyes snorkel boat trip to Stingray City on 8/19 with my wife while on the Disney Fantasy cruise ship. Great value for the time we were on Grand Cayman. The boat was about 1/2 - 3/4 full with about 75+ people but didn't seem overcrowded since it was a large 2 story boat. We enjoyed the... More

This was my first time snorkeling and I couldn't have felt more comfortable from beginning to end. Even the staff that gave us bus rides to the boat were extremely friendly and comforting. Matthew and Joaquin were very informative and helpful with instructions and having Joaquin in the water with us if we needed him made me feel safe. I... More

Don Foster's dive center is very organized & professional. The equipment is in very good condition. They take a role call before & after dive. A clear explanation of the location of the dive, depth, time, hand signals for safety checks under water, limit on air in tank when everyone heads back towards the boat & buoyancy check after jumping...

We went on a Carnival Cruise June 2014 and booked an excursion with these folks. I'm a scuba instructor and my husband is advanced OW certified. We also did this in Belize and were not happy.

I booked a boat dive with Don Foster's for 2pm on Saturday. At 11am they called to say the dive was cancelled. When I asked why, they advised there wasn't enough people booked to make it worth their while, which struck me as rather shoddy. I asked why they didn't give a little bit more notice so I could have... More

Thank you for your feedback. Unfortunately, this dive trip was cancelled due to the fact that only a single diver was booked on the excursion. Whilst, we do our best to avoid these sort of situations it is difficult to run trips for a single individual especially in the heart of slow season. We apologize and love spending our days... More
