Don Foster, a name synonymous with scuba diving for many years. Just a quick stop for a two tank dive, yet everyone was treated like a long standing customer. They supplied two dive masters to keep our two groups at six people each. The rental gear was in great shape and the shop offered a wide variety of equipment and... More

I work onboard cruise ships and so have been privileged to dive at don fosters plenty of times over the last two years...not only are the crew friendly, fun and passionate, they also make you feel like part of the crew regardless of whether it's your first time or 20th time with them. The dives are amazing but don fosters... More

Rob, the Sting Ray Whisperer, and all the Emerald Eyes crew made this excursion outstanding. Rob gave the best brief tutorial on snorkeling I have ever heard, so even a novice snorkeler should have lots of fun, especially since the equipment was in good shape with a complete size range. This was an excursion booked through Holland America and included... More

My wife and I booked the certified two tank dive excursion through Carnival. When we arrived in Grand Cayman, we transported from the pier to Don Foster's via shuttle. At the shop, we were greeted by one of the staff members who verified the excursion and then clearly explained the check-in process. The check-in and certification verification process went smoothly.... More

Well organized large operation. We had a pleasant dive day albeit a bit rushed while in the boat. Boat and dive masters are all really young but seem to enjoy their job. I have dove with them before while staying in GC . This was the first time off a cruise ship so there was a lot of paperwork for... More

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!
