Earlier this year I decided to become dive certified. After taking the initial course at our local Midwest Dive shop I was able to to complete my certification dives in April of this year with Tom at the Cayman Marine lab. He was very knowledgeable and I felt comfortable under his guidance. In August I took a second trip to... More

My family of four, two daughters 11, and 13, dove 5 days with Tom and Luke in July. All five days were great trips. Each day Tom tried to take us to where he thought the best dives would be that day, without regard to gas or whatever was easiest for him He had great patience with the children, he... More

We've been diving with Cayman Marine Lab since it first opened. Before Tom arrived, we dived with the cattle boats. His knowledge of the waters is unmatched! I noticed Reviewer EPS07 wrote a bad review of a trip. I am a certified rescue diver and my dive buddy and brother, has been a certified dive instructor for over 30 years.... More

Diving in Cayman is always great, but CML makes it fun! Learn a little marine biology, dive off the beaten path and even see those ***** lion fish slain! Great time! Thank you.

Unorganized and very poor communication and consideration. Numerous complications that led to someone having to report to the ER because of a minor case of the bends. Was looking forward to this as was told will go to areas that no other dive operations go to, but maybe there's a reason for that…

Perhaps you would do better to spend your energy writing an apology letter to the rest of the guests on board that day after ruining their trip by not listening or paying attention to your divemaster. The divemaster had to spend all his time and energy on you alone and still you made one bad decision after the other, not... More

Been diving with Tom & CML for a total of about 7 years and there has never been a dull moment. Tom is funny and passionate about the sea and diving. He has a wealth of knowledge and is an all around great guy!

If you want the run-of-the-mill, cookie cutter, touristy scuba-diving excursion, then look elsewhere. But, if you want a personalized, first-class diving experience, then Captain Tom is your guy! His equipment is great: clean, functional and safe. He can accommodate all levels, from experienced divers, like my son, to anxious beginners like me. After many years of my trying unsuccessfully to... More

I reviewed Cayman Marine Lab a few years ago but felt compelled to provide an update. This year I brought my girlfriend, Katrina, to dive with CML in order to complete her checkouts/certification. Despite the fact that there were a number of other people on the boat (including some very novice divers), and after making sure that everyone else was... More

Cayman Marine Lab made my first diving experiences so amazing. He was so helpful and understanding. Tom is so fun and he always knows where to take us and is so interesting. I will never go diving with anyone else in Grand Cayman after experiencing diving with Tom. He is the best!

My wife and I spent our honeymoon in the Grand Cayman last summer. Ever since, I've meant to post a review of our dive with Cayman Marine Lab. It was a great, cost effective, and exciting dive. The fact that I'm thinking of it a year later should tell you something. I've been on dives in Bermuda, Barbados, and St.... More
