Review of: Eco Tour
I have not been diving for a number of years, did my certification with CML over 20 years ago and for several years dove with Tom. He was delightful, helpful and I always felt comfortable as a relative newcomer to diving.. Only thing, he was coaching his son's Little League baseball. Time does fly and it is great to see CML going strong and Tom's son carrying forth. Maybe I will make it back to Cayman and if I do it certainly will be with CML.

Review of: Eco Tour
My highlight each year is being with my family and friends in the Cayman's but my favorite thing to do there is for sure diving with Tom and his fantastic staff. Every dive is amazing, fun, safe, and don't forget educational. All the best to you, your staff, and your family during this pandemic. We hope to see you next year. Robbie

Review of: Eco Tour
I recently completed my 2000th dive. Many of them have been during the past 30 years with Tom Byrnes of CML. I have enjoyed many of the best regarded dive sites globally. He has been the best dive operator, that I have been associated with. Foremost is his awareness of customer safety and his phenomenal underwater visualization and marine knowledge. He retains his diving passion and is dedicated to getting us to the best dive sites. Unlike most dive operators he brings his dedication and experience to the dive boat rather than remaining back at a dive shop. His PHD in Marine Biology allows his divers an unheard opportunity to increase their own appreciation and knowledge of marine life.

Review of: Eco Tour
First time diving, and in the Caymen Islands ! Me, my son, and his friend contacted Tom a couple months before our Cruise and arranged a Discover Scuba dive. Tom let us know all the particulars about getting to his docked boat by cab. We met there, had some instruction, and then went for a wonderful dive out by the reef. Tom was very conscientious and continually monitoring our safety. We had a wonderful time, and have since become certified divers. We hope to someday return for another dive, and will definitely book through Cayman Marine Lab.

Review of: Eco Tour
Been diving with Tom & CML for a long time. Brought my oldest son down to get certified. My son is now the 3rd generation to dive with CML and he absolutely loved it. They are great with kids and making them feel comfortable in and out of the waterwork
