Learning to Scuba has always been on my "list" and when I saw it on Carnivals Excursion list I was excited. The thought of taking several days of classes back home was less than appealing so taking a beginner class on grand Cayman was a must do. Myself and three of our late teen kids took the five minute buss... More

We booked the Beginner's Scuba Diving through Carnival for our stop in Grand Cayman. We have snorkeled before but never dived and, I was very nervous and not sure if I would go through with the actual diving, but, my husband really wanted to. We had two guides, Sergio and Katie. Sergio led the class beforehand and gave many good... More

Booked this from our carnival cruise. Daphne Tia was a great instructor. She took her time with our family making sure everyone was comfortable and that they were good to continue with the dive. I'm certified but she was great with everyone else who wasn't. Definitely recommend doing this for people who want to try scuba diving for first time... More

Diving was a new adventure for my 16 year old son, 18 year old daughter, and me. Katie Allen was our guide and did a great job.

Our family went through our second DST at Don Fosters and it was outstanding. This time we had Daphnie. She picked us up and dropped us back at our hotel (Westin) and her training and our subsequent initial dive was even better than that 2 years earlier. We are hooked on Don fosters and look forward to returning again next... More

Had an amazing dive at the West Wall and Devil's Grotto. They're a very professional and well-run outfit. I have nothing bad to say about them, they're top-notch! Great people... More
