Owner description: DON FOSTER'S DIVE CAYMAN is a full-service dive operation in the Cayman Islands. Established on Grand Cayman since 1982 and located on the waterfront 3/10 mile south of George Town, Don Foster’s is fronted by Casuarina Point Reef, where you will find excellent shore diving and snorkeling. We have a large dive shop offering dive and snorkel gear rental, t-shirts, souvenirs, drinks and snacks. Our boat diving package rates are the lowest on the island and we will work with you to make your diving experience memorable, whether you want to dive a lot (check out 20-tank special) or a little. Don Foster’s Dive is the place to go for experience, excellent customer service and a great dive experience.

Went to Gr Cayman on a cruise last fall. Booked the excursion through the cruise line. They use Don Foster's. This was my 14 year old daughter's first ocean dive after getting certified. I told the DM that. She has sinus/allergy issues and sometimes has trouble clearing her ears. I told them that too.
We had to descend the mooring line slowly so she could clear her ears.As we were headed down, I looked down at the group and saw them moving off. My wife and step-daughter tried to hang back but had to stay with the group.
My daughter and I got to the bottom about a minute later. We headed in the groups last known direction, but couldn't see them. So we turned around and spent 30 minutes looking around within sight of the mooring line so we didn't get lost. We found the group as they were heading back so we did spend about five minutes with the group.
I got certified 30 yrs ago. Back then, Gr Cayman was consistantly in the top three of diving spots in the world. I'd always wanted to go there and finally got a chance to go with my family of newly certified divers. This was very disappointing.
I know the dive boat was full. I know they contract with the cruise line and have already been paid.I'm sure cruise divers are a pain in the ^#%, but YOU DON'T LEAVE A DIVER.
I will definitely go back to Grand Caymanl probably on another cruise. But I will book our dives myself - not through the cruise line. I will not use Don Foster's again.

My three kids (ages 17, 16 and 12), my friend and his son (age 18), and I went on a two-tank dive with Don Foster's Dive Cayman as part of a Carnival Cruise Excursion at the end of March. This was without question the best dive experience any of us had ever had. The people at the dive shop was friendly and efficient, and the dive people on the boat were absolutely terrific. They were friendly, the dive locations were perfect, they did a great job leading the two dives, they made sure everyone had a great time, and, perhaps most importantly, they made sure everyone was safe. I can't say enough good things about Don Foster's Dive Cayman. If you want to dive in the Cayman's go to Don Foster's.
