Went for the beginner scuba, it was awesome❤️. I'm 13 and it was my first time, everyone was nice and the classes weren't boring and I learned a lot. I loved scuba diving, you should try it!

Very impressed with this dive operation. Lots of crew to help with dive prep and they are very knowledgeable of the plentiful dive sites. I liked the fact that they had emergency air available for the decompression stop as you don't often see this. A very good day of diving.

We couldn't agree with you more -- there is nothing better than a great day of diving! Additionally, we find that the hookah regulators (the emergency air) add an extra safety measure that contribute to a more comfortable dive experience. Come back and dive with us again. We will be sure to share more of our islands dive sites with... More

Had a great shore snorkel trip. Saw great stuff with excellent visibility! ! Down side was that it was more like a guided snorkel trip. Wish it would have been just snorkeling. Saw a ton of cool stuff right at the shore. The girl guide was excellent and I am returning in February to dive for 3 days!

Our shore snorkel is a ton of fun! We do like to guide people out to the reef because it's a couple hundred yards from our shop but it is SUCH a cool reef to see. Glad to hear you enjoyed your guide! Let us know when you're coming back to dive and we can hook you up with a... More

The staff are 100% professionals. Part of that professionalism is being able to put your clients at ease while still maintaining the safety required. They did an amazing job! I would not, will not, hesitate to use them again!

My daughter did the beginner dive while our cruise was in port. It was GORGEOUS! Staff-top notch, safety oriented, passionate, serious but still fun. Facility- awesome, I Relaxed on lounge chairs on a pier over the water while she was in class. 5 stars all around

This tour was the Shipwreck and Reef Snorkeling trip. Taking this tour was a last minute decision but I'm so glad I did. The crew were fabulous allowing people to explore but still available for any help needed. There were several young children but they all seemed to enjoy the adventure. I've snorkeled in Hawaii but this was my first... More

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

Great to hear from you! The wreck and reef snorkel excursion is one of our favorite trips because there is so much history (and marine life) so close to the shore! We're glad your wife was able to take a look at the wreck and get to experience the Cali first hand! Hope to see you again. More
