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.

We took a beginner's dive course with Don Foster's. Had a fantastic time! Short dive in the pool then Jay took us to the reef just off shore. Down to 45' and lots of reef and fish. The wife actually saw a puffer fish! Lots of parrot fish and other wildlife and plants. Thanks to Jay and everyone else there.... More

We were met by friendly individuals who set us up with our gear. I could not say anything but good things about the crew of the boat that took us out. They were friendly and courteous. I would highly recommend them for diving. They are very convenient if you would like to walk there from Georgetown. We had a great... More

I signed up for a two tank dive through the Holland America Eurodam cruise ship. The two tank dive was originally scheduled to span the noon hour for the two dives to maximize the light. I got a notice from the ship that the excursion would not start until a few hours later. When I arrived at the dive shop... More

We are happy to hear that we could help get you in the water – and we agree, better later on than never! There is nothing worse than a dry diver on Grand Cayman! But more importantly, we’re glad that you and your group had a great two tank dive. Thanks for sharing some of your photos! Hope to dive... More

This dive was recommended by my brother who had been here on a previous cruise so my son and I decided to do the 2-tank dive of the famous wall and arches.

We had heard good things about the diving around Grand Cayman, so we decided that port was going to be the snorkel stop on our cruise. We picked the “Shipwreck and Reef” tour, which my wife enjoyed, but I found it a little disappointing. This was a pretty difficult review, as I found the company was great and I’d absolutely...

Thank you for your review. We are glad that you and your wife felt safe during the excursion and it seems as though you got some great pictures! In regards to the reef being close enough to shore that you could easily make it there yourself, this is accurate. In fact, the proximity of the reef to the shore is... More

I had my first scuba experience while on a cruise with Celebrity Cruises during our stop in George Town and it couldn't have been a better first.
