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

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

Thanks Gina, I enjoyed you and the family and I am glad to see you liked the easy-going atmosphere. You guys did a great job getting those girls up early each day; I know how difficult that can be. I hope you will return to Cayman next year. All the best Tom 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
