We decided that we couldn't leave Grand Cayman without trying Scuba Diving. After a quick phone call, we had door-to- door service from our hotel to the dive facility on very short notice. The check-in process was smooth, paperwork was pain free, and the orientation was actually quite fun. The employees are obviously passionate about diving, and are safety-oriented to... More

What a blast!!! We started at stingray island and then we went to the reef. Such an amazing trip. They held the stingrays so we could touch them. Nick and Ed were so informative and gentile with the Rays. The reef was wonderful. Plenty to see. Best money I spent this whole trip.

Just returned from a cruise where we ported in Grand Cayman.

Don fosters went above and beyond on all accounts of my dive. They were friendly, professional, and very knowledgeable about the sea life/dive areas. I've done the discover scuba class a couple times in other countries, and this was by far the best. No one in my travel party wanted to scuba so I went by myself. My class ended... More
