My family of four (2 parents and 2 adult kids) dove with Tom recently and had a fabulous experience. This was a bucket list item for us to take our kids diving and Tom and Cayman Marine Lab helped us to knock this one off the list in grand style. We did 3 two tank dives and found Tom to... More

I had a great time diving with Tom on 3 different days during my recent stay on Grand Cayman. He was very accommodating and helped me get comfortable again after a hiatus from diving for a few years. He is very knowledgeable and I enjoyed learning from him not only about diving but also about marine life overall. I'll definitely... More

Had a great time diving with Tom, and getting our certification! We always felt comfortable in his care, and now feel a lot more comfortable diving. Tom was great at pointing out interesting things while mixing the cert stuff with exploring. The wall was truly amazing. We are really glad we chose Tom and Marine lab. Personal attention, small group... More

Have done many dives but have never had a better experience than the week with Tom and his team at Cayman Marine Labs. They found great sites, were so fun and very helpful with less experienced divers. Even provided some eduction about the marine life between dives. Highly recommend them!!!!

6 more incredible dives with Cayman Marine Lab! We have been diving with Tom Byrnes for the past 3 years. He always takes good care of us and puts us on some great dive spots. Always a good time with CML! Thanks Tom. See you next year!

My wife and I dove with Tom and his crew at Cayman Marine Lab a couple of weeks ago and had a blast! We logged eight dives with him over two weeks and cannot compliment him and the whole operation enough. He is helpful with everything and explains all of the marine life you see below the surface, he is... More

CML has totally ruined us for any other dive boat operator. Tom and his crew always find the best dive sites - not the same old over-dived areas. Competent divers are never over-guided and beginners are never neglected.

We dove with Tom Byrnes last week after a 9 year absence. He treated us as if we had seen him last week, and remembered our past dives and stories! He is the best kept secret in Grand Cayman (good for us, not so much for him!) If you want a truly personalized dive with an extremely knowledgeable Dive Master... More

We had Discovery dives from other locations, none of us were certified diverss. Tom was great instructor and the staffs were great as well. Very friendly and we had a great time, we went out twice with them during our stay. We will definitely keep his number for future visit!
