Took son on dive trip to Grand Caymans and dove with Don Foster's every day during the trip. Fantastic dives and some of the greatest dive masters, captains and staff that you would ever hope to find. Had a great time and am dying to go back. Best dive vacation so far.

Our guides were excellent and the snorkeling was fantastic.

The boat ride is about 40 minutes long but the crew uses the time to get everyone seer up with gear. The ride out and back is beautiful and a dolphin was even tailing our boat on the way back in!

The reef is a great combination if interesting and plentiful corals adnd fish.

My recently certified 12-year-old and I went on two dives with Don Foster's - a reef dive and a stringray city dive - and on the stringray city dive, my 9-year-old snorkeled along on the surface with one of the divemasters, as my son and I dove with the other divemaster.

Both our dives were superb. Our guide on the reef dive, Amy, was great. She was very sensitive to the fact that this was my 12-year-old's first "real" open water dive after his certification, so she gave both of us personalized attention, which made the dive a great experience.

On our stingray city dive, both the divemasters, Esteban and Alvaro were superb. Esteban dove with us and the stingrays, and Alvaro snorkeled with my daughter on the surface so we could see each other throughout the entire dive. Even though she was the only snorkeler, Alvaro was happy to stay with her on the surface and take great care of her, since it was her first open water snorkeling trip.It made for a fun diving experience for my whole family.

Sergio is running a great show at Don Foster's. The individual attention coupled with divemasters who really care and are very sincere makes for a great diving experience. I would definitely recommend Don Foster's for anyone looking for some nice diving in the Caymans.

Had a great experience with this company via a Cruise excursion. The boats they take you out in are super nice, smaller than those two deck types, they had nice seats and great views for all aboard. The snorkel guides and boat captains were all very nice, funny and entertaining. They ensure that everybody gets attention and gets to see and touch and do exactly what they want.

This is a great group to do the Sting Ray snorkeling with. They don't turn things into a shoving match and they are careful with the animals and give everybody a chance to touch and hold and take pictures before wrapping things up at that site.

If you have snorkeled before in other parts of the carribean, asia etc. then you most likely will be disappointed in the fix/corals here. They are nothing spectacular or amazing. You will see some fish but nothing too extraordinary. Touching and holding the sting rays will be the highlight of the day for you for sure.

Diving Grand Cayman should be on every diver's wish list. And an operation like Don Foster's is exactly what you expect to acclimate you to a new dive spot. We made two dives the day we spent in Grand Cayman. We've already done Stingray City, so we made a run out to the Beach Club Sand Slip in 80 feet of water. Conditions were incredible! A strong surface current made for a tough swim, but with 100+ foot visibility, the work was worth it.

Sea turtles, yellow rays, beautiful corals and a host of sea life from the microscopic to the goliath were on display.

Andy did a great job briefing us on the next site, a "swim through" called Devil's Grotto. Pictures just can't do this dive justice! Enormous Tarpon stand like sentinels in garden of hard and soft corals. Silversides gather in the millions inside the grotto surrounding divers instantly. The feeling of being in a world of quick silver was magic. We rested on the sandy bottom and watched as five foot tarpon darted through the spaces between our bodies and the coral to gulp down dozens of silversides at a bite. SPECTACULAR!

Made me want to spend another day in Grand Cayman to dive with Don Fosters again!

Thank you! Great experience!
