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.

My husband did the wreck dive and thought it was pretty cool. The staff were professional and safety concerned. He saw many great fish and loved the dive.

We booked this tour before we left Canada for our cruise. We were met promptly at our designated time and walked a short way to the dive boat. We were taken to two dive/snorkelling sites a short boat ride away. It was a beautiful day, the water was warm and the fish on the reef were abundant. Our guides, Jonathan,... More

Wonderful place, excellent instructors! It was the first time for me and my friend to try scuba diving, and I was kind of nervous. But our instructors made it easy for us. The content was delivered in an easy-to-follow manner, and there was one (very sweet) instructor for two of us under sea. It turned out scuba diving was not... More

I used Don's for my dive to Kittiwake, I had a great time on this dive. I saw my first eagle ray of my life, it swam right over and above us only about 2 minutes into the dive. The Kittiwake had many entry points. We even got to go into the re compression chamber. There was also free divers... More

I am a PADI diver, 1st time in Cayman with my family, was recommended to Don Fosters and did a refresher and the USS Kittiwake dive.

A perfect snorkeling adventure for my husband and 11 year old son. The guides were extremely knowledgeable and they ensured everyone was safe and accounted for during the excursion. There were lots of colorful and bright fish. It was an easy swim despite the windy weather. My husband loved the rum punch on the way back! Will definitely go again... More
