Awesome choice for an excursion! The price was right and just what we wanted to do while in Grand Caymans - snorkel in the beautiful blue waters! We saw stingrays, eels, gorgeous fish, and more. The staff of the Skindiver (our boat) were amazing! I would absolutely recommend this if you want a relaxing, low-key excursion .. while experiencing the... More

We scuba dove with Dan Foster's the first week fo May 2015 and had a wonderful time. The dive masters were all friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. They took us to a different dive site for each dive, all of which were great. If I go back to Grand Cayman, I will definately dive with them again.

We booked a beginner dive class from our Carnival cruise. Having just zip-lined in Roatan and Belize, we thought we'd had the best time of the week already. Wrong! Lindsay gave us a review on safety and we practiced in the pool before heading into the water. She made the entire excursion more than we could've hoped for! Our group... More

Wow! Diving beat the zip lining?!? It is pretty cool under the water! We're glad that Lindsey showed you guys such a great time! She has quite the knack for instructing and she loves showing our guests all of the interesting sea creatures that she finds. Come back and dive with us and Lindsey again!! More

Wow, booked this through Carnival the day we docked and wasn't disappointed. All the staff, from bus drivers to the crew of the boat were funny, informative and knew what they were doing. The boat ride was great, the water amazing. The sting ray portion of the trip was incredible, being with and handling these animals was truly amazing! Than... More

Fantastic experience with a friendly and skilled staff for snorkeling. Totally made our cruise and would do it again. I believe they do not allow children under the age of 12 and "mature" people need to remember there is a small ladder leading from the boat to the water. I am in my 50's and felt super-safe and was very... More

This is absolutely the best dive shop ever! All the staff strive to make your day relaxing and exciting. The Dive Masters are great at helping us who like to take their gear off in the water. "No worries" is a saying they live up to. One dive "Fin" the friendly nurse shark accompanied us the entire time.

My wife and I have been diving with Don Fosters for ten years. Though the staff change, the same friendly and professional service continues.

We did a dive with them and booked from our cruise ship. They were fantastic! The dive masters were great. We were divided into small groups, 4 or 5 per group. They showed us all sorts of really cool things that we may have missed on our own. Very friendly and helpful. The equipment was in great shape as well.... More

i dove west wall with them while on a cruise. Guide was great, equipment in good shape. Needless to say the diving was amazing. Over 100 foot of visibility. Water temperature about 82. They take care of their customers.
