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...

If you are looking for an AWESOME dive experience in Cayman, then Tom is your man!! I have been diving with Tom for the last 23 years, and will always choose CML over anyone else. Tom's experience and knowledge just hands down trumps all others. I love that he chooses to find to a great spot and drop anchor. We... More

We did four dives with Cayman Marine Lab between Sept 27 - Oct 4, and it was the best. First and foremost, Tom seems to know the Cayman waters like the back of his hand. I understand he's been diving those waters for 25 yrs or something like that. We dropped anchor on the north wall for each dive this... More

Grand Cayman is a wonderful vacation destination. New roads, new hotels and many new, wonderful restaurants - all in all, a lot of positive change. We were there eleven days had 7 two tank dive days, all with Cayman Marine Lab. Yes,Tom has a new dive boat and a new zealous disdain for Lion Fish, but diving with CML was... More

Thanks Tom!! This was a great trip. I went on this dive off a cruise boat and there were no hiccups. I communicated with Tom via email and never missed a beat. The places we dove were off the beaten path and there were no other dive boats around. Tom is incredibly knowledgeable, which was exactly what I was looking... More

My family has been diving with Cayman Marine Labs for the last 24 years. They run an excellent dive operation and we will continue to dive with them in the future! Can't wait for our next trip!

Best boats, best dive sites, safest operator, best marine lectures, nicest divers, some who I see again and again. If you go to Cayman and don't dive with Tom you will miss a great dive opportunity

Thanks again Tom Byrnes. Your Cayman Marine Lab outfit was very accommodating for my daughter and me as we scrambled for a late-morning dive during our March 2014 visit to Grand Cayman. And your Captain Dylan provided a spectacular afternoon with Cayman Marine Lab on the North Wall. We are grateful to have found you! We really enjoyed Dylan’s calm... More

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
