Diving with Tom is both a education as well as a great dive experience smaller boats make for smaller groups and dive locations not destroyed by the large dive operations. Tom also ran a private trip to sting ray city for our (4) four person group this made the trip worth while as we missed the crowds and had the... More

I recently returned from Grand Cayman, having spent a delightful week of Diving with Tom Byrnes and his Cayman Marine Lab operation... As always, Tom does a great job of finding the most interesting dive sites...several dives were "adventure" dives - dropping the anchor in the sand near the reefs, or the wall, and then diving on virtually pristine sites...

We dove with Tom and Cayman Marine Lab during Thanksgiving week - although the weather wasn't great during the week, Tom found us calm water and fantastic diving all week. I can recommend diving with Cayman Marine Lab without hesitation!

I have been diving with Tom and his crew for 2 years now. His knowledge, professionalism, and sense of humor make diving with Cayman Marine Lab truly enjoyable. On average there are only 5 other people per dive which makes the experience more personal and less commercial in Nature. A lot of his customers have been diving with Cayman Marine... More

My wife and I dove with Tom for three consecutive days (2 tanks per day) and had an amazing time. We visited beautiful walls and reefs, never seeing other divers. Tom is extremely knowledgable and entertaining. Safety was always a top priority. The boat is beautiful and there was plenty of cold water to drink between dives. Tom was very... More

I completed my course & pool work before travel, with plans to certify during my Grand Cayman trip. (I was traveling with 3 certified divers.) By way of recommendation from my local scuba dive master, I looked at some of the other groups for diving certifications on Grand Cayman. All of theses groups seemed to target large dive groups, many... More

Spent 3 days diving with Tom over Columbus Day week; in a word...fantastic. My wife completed her open water certification with Tom, who I felt did a fantastic job making her feel comfortable under the water. Prior to her first "real dive", my wife was quite nervous, but Tom put forth an outstanding effort to make the certification enjoyable. As... More

Dove with Tom and Cayman Marine Labs over a two week stay 10/4 to 10/18. Dr. Tom offers the best in a Dive experiance for Grand Cayman. We collected a pile of Lion Fish on our dives. Doing our part to reduce this invasive species (see Pic). His boat is accomodating with a dive platform for giant stride entry or... More

We were looking for a family dive experience for our two teen children. This was our first time and Tom was patient, experienced, and extremely knowledgeable. My daughter was very nervous and his deck hand took the time necessary till she was comfortable to get her underwater. They ensured our diving experience was the best it could be. My daughter...
