Don Foster's dive staff were very friendly, funny, and helpful. After some basic teaching, time was spent learning and practicing skills in a pool. Equipment seemed in good condition and effort was made to satisfy each diver's needs. When everyone was ready, time was spent in about 12 ft of water to acclimate. This was not my first dive so...

In December, we took a day off our cruise to go diving in the Caymans with Don Foster's. The dives were great (the Wall and a wreck dive). But the staff was a little funky. While my husband and are are both certified (and have done tens of dives, all over the world), most of the diving we do now... More

Grand Cayman was the 2nd of 3 stops of our cruise and was by far the best experience of my entire vacation. Don and Russell took our Carnival Cruises group of about 25 people out on a snorkelling excursion off the coast of Grand Cayman. Conditions were perfect and Don and Russell made this an experience to remember. I would... More

This was my second opportunity to dive with this shop. I first dove it 3 years ago. As it was then, it is still a great group with which to dive. Very professional and courteous staff. If I get another chance to dive Grand Cayman, it will be with them.

Due to wind and chop our ship had to anchor out of Spotts east of the normal anchorage. The weather complicated things and caused more bus travel. We were picked up on what became a very full bus and taken to the shop for paperwork and rental pickup. Rental gear pickup (BC, reg and weights for us) was very efficient.... More

Thank you for your very thoughtful review. We do try our best when the seas are rough and the cruise ships anchor on the other side of the island, to be as efficient as possible in order to accommodate our cruise ship guests. And even if the seas are choppy, we are still able to dive different parts of the... More

Had the pleasure of diving with the crew of Don Foster's in Grand Cayman. I am new to diving and they were patient and professional. Got to do two dives, saw amazing fish, reefs and sunken ship. They were organized and efficient with the dive and equipment. Great experience.

The professionalism of the Dive masters working at Don Fosters is the best I have ever encountered. The Dive briefings given on the boat were extremely thorough yet entertaining. The guys checked our gear over, gave as much or as little help as one preferred and kept the diving groups no larger than a 1 to 6 diver ratio. The... More

This was a terrific experience. The staff on the boat was organized, professional and fun. They are very safety conscious, and the equipment is top notch. They are also protective of the resources, which we appreciated. We went first to frolic with the sting rays, and then on a snorkel to an area near the barrier reef. The colors of... More
