DON FOSTER'S DIVE CAYMAN is a full-service dive operation in the Cayman Islands. Established on Grand Cayman since 1982 and located on the waterfront 3/10 mile south of George Town, Don Foster’s is fronted by Casuarina Point Reef, where you will find excellent shore diving and snorkeling. We have a large dive shop offering dive and snorkel gear rental, t-shirts, souvenirs, drinks and snacks. Our boat diving package rates are the lowest on the island and we will work with you to make your diving experience memorable, whether you want to dive a lot (check out 20-tank special) or a little. Don Foster’s Dive is the place to go for experience, excellent customer service and a great dive experience.

We returned to Grand Cayman aboard the Carnival Pride and decided to try diving with Don Foster's again as they had invited us to do. There were four of us in our group, three very experienced and one recently certified. We found everything to run extremely smoothly with our diving experience. Our first dive was off a wall with opportunities... More

I was a walk in off a cruise ship, asked about diving and they had me out 45 min later on a shore dive. Great experience!

This was only my second time scuba diving but the best so far. The views were amazing, we got to see LOTS of fishes of different types, turtles and even a shark that we were able to see couple of time while under the water, the instructor said it was a while since he have seen one. The crew it's... More

Don Foster’s Dive Center is located just south of Georgetown, on the way to South Sound. There is a small white building with an equally small parking lot. Unlike Eden Rock Dive Center, which has just bare amenities, Don Foster’s has a swimming pool and lounge chairs, a protected cove entry, showers, picnic tables under shade trees, and lounge chairs...

This was a totally excellent intro to scuba diving for a guy who has never done it before. We started with a brief lecture on the basics. Then we were fitted out with gear and went to the swimming pool to practice the basics. The leader-participant ratio was one to four. Our leader was Lauren. She was outstanding! She got... More

Thank you for reviewing your Discovering Scuba Diving experience with us, and highlighting your instructor, Lauren. Trying something new always takes a little time, and for many this introduction to the open water diving is life changing.

My wife and I were on a NCL cruise that didn't offer diving as an excursion. I contacted DOFO on a Google whim and Yohana responded right away. On the day of the dive we were met at the docks and driven to their dive shop. From there Seth and Antony took us out to the Kittiwake for an incredible... More

This snorkel tour is a short walk from the cruise pier. The 2 1/2 hour tour is just fine. A visit to two snorkeling sites just a short boat ride. Lots of nice fish to see

As most reviews have mentioned, safety was highly emphasized - which was comforting since I was taking the Discover Scuba class with my 12 year old daughter. When we went into the ocean after the pool instruction, my daughter was a little uncomfortable using the equipment, but an instructor quickly worked with her to assist with transitioning to the ocean....

Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. Comfort and relaxation is key in scuba diving, and of coarse doing something totally out of your comfort zone can be challenging.
