My first diving experience outside of Maine and it was absolutely worth it! Tom and Paul were extremely knowledgeable of the area as well as the marine creatures. While diving anywhere in the Caymans is probably stunning, these guys made our diving educational, enjoyable, and above all fun! If you want the whole package and the best diving experience in...

Paul from cayman marine lab took our family on an amazing excursion. He combined a snorkeling trip to stingray sandbar and a scuba dive for 2 of our party to stingray city. My husband and 11 year old are qualified divers and Paul was such an amazing guide, support, and fun person to be with. On this trip he asked... More

This year, I've achieved both my Open Water and Advanced certifications, while completing over 50 dives, with Tom and Paul. I've also been with several other operations while on the island, and can say with certainty that no one is more capable to show you the true splendor of Cayman's waters than these two. Paul's calm demeanor, and expert knowledge... More

Just returned from another excellent diving adventure with Tom and the Cayman Marine Lab crew. The experience was top-notch, as always. Throughout our vacation we had divers that ranged from teenagers to elderly, and Tom was able to attend to everyone's needs just the same. His experience and knowledge creates an opportunity unlike any other that you don't want to... More

Went diving recently with Cayman Marine Lab with my wife and father for his 70th birthday. The 3 of us have been diving all over the world and we have yet to find a better overall dive experience than with Cayman Marine Lab. Tom and the rest of his crew are absolutely phenomenal at putting you on the best spots... More

Went diving recently for a full week. This was second time to dive with Tom. Again it was some great diving with a nice variety of dive sites. I took a GoPro and got some great footage of pass through caves , sea turtles, lots of Lionfish hunting if you want, moray eels and beautiful coral reefs. Tom as always... More

Tom did it again. It occurred to me that I have been diving with Tom for almost half my life (started in '92-'93 but who remembers these details) and have never written a review. This year was awesome as per usual. Tom and the crew at CML have always been about making each dive and each year a new and... More

My family has been diving with Dr. Tom Byrnes for over a decade, which is a testament to our positive accolades for Cayman Marine Lab -- and to Tom's patience for us!! There are no better dive masters/instructors than Tom and his crew. Our best family memories (and photos) have been made diving The Wall together. They really took care... More
