Description: DON FOSTER'S DIVE CAYMAN is a full-service dive operation in the Cayman...
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.

In the end, when I go back to Grand Caymen I will happily take a boat dive with these people. I had originally planned to come with another couple whom are not divers. They were going to take my non-diving wife somewhere else, but they have to cancel, so I picked this place for a single tank shore dive through... More

Awesome customer service. Staff is amazing. Best deal in town. I would definitely recommend it. It was my first ever open water dive and our guide Jonathan was outstanding. Everyone on the boat was friendly and fun. I am glad I chose Don Foster for my diving experience. If I come back, this is the dive shop I would use.

This dive shop has the best customer service. I've been impressed with their email communication weeks in advance prior to arriving on island. Once we were at our hotel they were there to pick up and drop off. Above all the staff has been phenomenal. I needed to do two dives to finish my open water certification and Jonathan was... More

We visited Don Fosters for the sixth or seventh time and as expected it was great. The staff was very friendly and the boats and equipment were top notch. We also got our Nitrox Certification this trip and that went very smoothly. The weather was awful, but Don Foster's couldn't help that, but they helped us make the best of... More

Not my favorite but superb diving is found all over the island. You really can't beat Grand Cayman diving.

My 2 sons and I dove with Don Fosters as a shore excursion booked through the Carnival Paradise. After a short shuttle ride to the dive shop their fast, friendly and efficient crew checked our cards had us signing waivers and outfitted us with gear in no time. The boat was docked right behind the shop and we were under... More

Even on a rainy day, the dive team made the 2 tank dives fun, especially the predive briefing. Great location right on the water with their boat and a pool!

I'm a diver with a disability so I need help getting in and out of the water. I did two two tank dives with Don Fosters in May 2015 and enjoyed them immensely.

I picked this operation while on a cruise ship, rather than find my own. It was convenient, close to the tender drop off point, but so were others. I also had a good dive experience with Don Foster's, which Is why I gave 4 stars, however I have to get this off my chest: The operators were very irritating and... More

This experience opened my eyes to the amazing world of snorkeling. It was the favorite excursion of my first cruise. The waters around Grand Cayman are so clear and perfect that they would make a swimming pool envious. The most spectacular and memorable part of this excursion is that you aren't snorkeling near shore, you're at the barrier reef where... More
