This was my first time learning to scuba dive. I was so scare as it was SO unnatural but Lee-Anne, the instructor, was so patient.

We wanted a beginner's dive along with the training first. My husband, 13 year old son, and one of his friends needed a refresher (we did it last summer in Cayman as well), and my son't other 2 friends had never done it. We showed up without an appointment and they were open and happy to accommodate all 6 of... More

We have over 50 dives and this was probably our best diving ever. The 3 day package was a great deal and all of the dive crew were amazing. They were so friendly and easy going but professional that every dive was effortless and enjoyable. Our 2 children (12 & 14) also had worry free and exciting diving. We did... More

After reading all the great comments about Don Foster's Dive Cayman, I decided to go with them to finish my final four open water dives to complete my open water certification.

This excursion was a great value. Don Foster is very welcoming and knowledgeable. All the equipment is included in the charge. His tutorial showed how to wear the equipment and which kind of fish to look for while we were in the water. We snorkeled in very clear waters out to a large coral reef, Devil's Grotto. On our entire... More

We booked this snorkeling shore excursion on our cruise through Carnival. Lee and Dean were our guides and they were amazing! Very funny and thoughtful of the group. The reef was so beautiful and it was perfect weather. My husband and I would love to go back.

We were looking for a good shore excursion during our cruise. We ended up doing the barrier reef snorkel through Dan Foster's. For $50 a head, you get shuttle service from the terminal, a lovely relaxing boat ride out to the reef, an hour or so in the FANTASTIC water and access to equipment, heads, clean water and munchies.

I went to two different sites by boat with them. All of the equipment worked. The tanks had plenty of air in them. The dive briefings were coherent. I saw some beautiful unspoiled places along the wall, lobsters, sting rays, and many fishes. I had dived in the Caymans before without seeing anything nearly as good. I highly recommend these...
