My son and I visited Grand Cayman on a RCCL Cruise in April and booked a private half day dive with Captain Mark to do my son's first two PADI open water dives. There was some initial confusion over the pick-up arranagements, but the girls at the information desk where we were told to meet them were able to get... More

We dove with Capt. Mark at Absolute and had a great experience. There were 5 of us with varying diving experience and he and his crew ensured all of us enjoyed our dives. He knows the Island and dives sites very well, so we shared our levels of experience and let him chose the dive locations. The kids enjoyed diving... More

We had several positive recommendations about absolute from diving buddies. They must have caught him on one of his good days, but we didn't. $500 for a private half day charter, 1.5 hours late picking us up. The woman at the information desk called him, got his assistant, and had to yell at him to get us picked nothing but... More

What I recall happening is , he got off the cruise ship at 10am and started screaming at the lady at the information booth, who i know personally, because we weren't there at that very moment to pick him up for the charter he had arranged for 12:30 a full 2 1/2 hours later. Unfortunately I was unable to answer... More

Took my daughter and two of her friends on a cruise for her 21st birthday. Had pre-arranged a dive/snorkeling trip with Mark for our day in Grand Cayman. Three of us were certified divers, two were not so we wanted a private outing where three could dive and two could snorkel. We left it to Mark to take us to... More

I had the good fortune to enjoy a half day of snorkeling in the beautiful Grand Cayman reefs with Captain Mark and his crew this February. The weather was perfect and the boat was at the dock when we arrived at the marina as promised by Mark. Mark went over all the safety instructions and ensured we all had the... More

Mark and his crew picked us up on Christmas day for a private trip to sting ray city and two snorkel stops on the reef. My wife spent substantial time finding an operator on a day when everything is closed. As a business owner he could have simply said no and spent time with his family. To take the extra... More

We went to Sting Ray City and two seperate snorkling stops. His crew was fantastic and great with the old and... More

My wife and I have been coming every year to Grand Cayman Island to dive, for approx 15 years. We dove with various operators for the first few years, and never had a bad experience. We just don't like the sometimes crowded feeling that can happen with the big operators. I think it was 10 years ago that we decided... More
