“Excellent dive operation that caters to the needs of its divers.”
Reviewed April 8, 2012

If you're in Grand Cayman, you should treat yourself to some dives with Indepth Watersports. The staff are incredibly experienced and knowledgeable, and Nat, the owner, is the highest rated Instructor Trainer in the Caribbean and is certified to teach everything from open water diver to instructor training on rebreathers. I am nitrox certified, but mostly dive air, as all of our money goes to support my husband's rebreather habit. Nat certified my husband for some of his technical training, and we have logged over 100 dives with Nat and his staff. We've referred many people to Indepth since they opened their business, and we consistently hear they've experienced their best diving with Indepth.

Diving with Indepth is unlike diving with other dive operators. They far surpass even the good ones, as they are focused on catering to the needs of their divers and providing the highest level of individualized attention. The dive groups are smaller, usually with 4-8 divers per trip, which allows the dives to last as long as your tank can. There is no rushing, and the fast RIB boat, Peaceful Warrior, gets you out to the dive sites quickly, making even the boat ride an added fun experience. Peaceful Warrior is equipped with snacks, water, and towels, and Indepth will keep, clean, and have your dive gear ready for you when you get on the boat each morning. They can also rent gear and arrange for transportation to and from the boat dock. Depending on the weather and winds, Peaceful Warrior usually leaves from Morgan's Harbor (for North Wall dives) or West Bay (for Kittiwake or West Bay dives) boat docks, which are near 7MB (Seven Mile Beach), or, when the winds are kicking up the surf on the north or west, it will leave from the South Sound boat dock.

As experienced divers and local residents (the dive staff from other dive operators dive with Indepth on their days off) are familiar with Nat, Art, and the Indepth staff, you should call and book your dives several weeks or months out. While they operate daily morning and afternoon 2 tank boat dives, they also provide 3 tank safari excursions, excursions to the sister islands, and night dives. In short, they will cater to what kind of diving you want to do.

In addition to diving, Indepth is available to book excursions for families and groups, including trips to Kaibo and Starfish Point. Our kids' favorite part of their vacation is always their trip on Peaceful Warrior for snacks at Kaibo. Our kids' version of Disney World is the reality of riding Peaceful Warrior full speed across the north sound. That experience brings smiles to the faces of kids of all ages, and it never gets old.

As a note, my husband has told me this review sounds like it was copied from marketing materials and that I should write poorly so that people doesn't thought it were copies and pasted from a website. I apologizes, but I using correct grammar and syntax until this paragraph because I write goodly.

“Absolutely Brilliant”
Reviewed April 7, 2012 via mobile

We completed two 2 tank dives and two night dives, one from the boat and one shore dive. Nat & Art bent over backwards to make the experience exceptional. We were picked up at our condo for every dive and delivered home safely. Art is the dest dive master I've ever had, she has a deep understanding of her environment and was able to show us things we would never have been able to spot on our own, especially at night. On the second day we dove two new sites on the North Wall, there was a bit of a current so she made them into drift dives. As always the health of the reef was far superior to the west side. The boat is FAST & is a unique Navy Seal design and enables them to go where others fear to tread and Nat makes it all look so easy. Did I mention that this boat is fast! I highly recommend Indepth to anyone traveling to the Caymans.

“ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS FAMILY EXPERIENCE!!!”
Reviewed April 2, 2012

Our family of 5 ( with 3 children ages 13, 10 and 8) visited Grand Cayman to experience scuba diving with Indepth Watersports. We had an incredible experience as our two older children spent the week with Art , Nat and Jeff completing their jr certification. I would HIGHLY recommend Indepth Watersports to any family wishing to introduce their children to the underwater experience of diving. The staff is highly trained, fun, interactive, attentive and supervised our children every minute of the way.

This is a MUST family experience!! Britt and Tammy

“Very sea-worthy boat - go anywhere in their Navy Seals RIB!”
Reviewed March 16, 2012

Nat and Art are friendly and competent. We went up to the North Wall when few others would dare due to the conditions - big swells up there. Their boat can handle it and what's more, Nat is a very talented captain. It was a fun ride out, great dive, and we even had a wild dolphin experience playing in our bow wave in the North Sound. Overall a great dive experience and I can't wait to go again!

Thanks for the review! We love happy customers. And we love the fact that we are able to get divers comfortably out diving on the North Wall when it is a bit rough for other boats. Plus it let's us make the trip to the sister islands!

Hope you make it back soon.

Happy Diving. :-)
