This was the second trip diving with Tom and this set of dives was just as great as last years. I brought my 13 year old son for his first boat dives and Tom and Paul were great working with him. While waiting for our second dive, he told us stories on how people get into trouble which was educational... More

Cayman Marine Labs is a small operation which means personal service and dive sites not visited by the large operations are the rule not the exception which makes for better diving and greater encounters. Tom is the owner and operator and is a Marine Biologist which is an extra bonus.

Great to dive with Tom again. I did not recognise any of the divers, but the vast majority of them were long time clients, very competent, and friendly. Through my over three decades of diving, I have not found another dive operator that I enjoy diving with more than Tom. He has that "IT" factor. Great sense of humor and... More

Have just returned from a wonderful vacation on Grand Cayman...a true highlight of which is always diving with Tom Byrnes and Cayman Marine Lab. Tom and his assistant Paul run a fine operation - great small boat diving venue that provides lots of variety, and dives on virtually pristine sites...Most of the dives were anchor drops on sandy areas between...

This past trip to as my second time diving with Cayman Marine Lab and I wouldn't dive anywhere else! The smaller boat size is great and allows everyone to get in the water fast and smoothly. Overall it was a great experience and I had a great time.

Although the name sounds quite official, the service is anything but. Because it is a small outfit, the groups are small, with lots of personal attention. Tom is passionate about diving, and seeks to make sure the dive experience kindles similar passion in the customer. He picked out some outstanding sites. Since he is a marine biologist by training, he... More

I recently obtained my certification with Tom. I was nervous to stay the least and Paul the dive master put me at ease. I had a few panicked moments and he was able to help me relax and get me through all my skills, his moto was that he wanted me to be able to dive safely. I can't thank... More
