Like so many others, we have been diving with Tom yearly for 20+ years, and will continue returning to him until he retires. He is always punctual, has never cancelled a dive, and brings us to the best places at optimal times. His knowledge and wisdom about the ocean life and conditions is unsurpassed, and his funny personality make him tons of fun to hang out with.

Like a lot of the people we have met on Tom's boat who come back year after year, we have been diving with Tom for nine years. He has never been late in picking us up or cancelled a trip. In addition to taking us to great dive sites and describing what we will see, Tom is extremely knowledgeable about Marine biology as one would expect from someone with a Phd and many years of scuba diving in the Grand Caymans. Tom seems to have endless interesting stories to share, which makes the required rest periods between dives both fun and informative. We also love Tom’s irreverent sense of humor.

I had a great diving experience with three of my siblings while at the Cayman Islands. None of us are open water certified, but Tom made us all very comfortable and showed us a great time. We saw great sites and learned a lot. The experience was very personal and we didn't have a big crowd on our trip. I would highly recommend looking him up if you are planning a trip to the Cayman Islands.

if you want the best experience diving in cayman, personal, small groups, and a owner who really wants to make sure every dive you do is the best, cayman marine lab is the dive operation for you. I have been diving with tom byrnes, owner, for the last 20 years, and now my kids are diving with us, and his son is helping on the boat, time flies along. when diving with tom and cayman marine lab, its like diving with friends, many of his divers come back every year, so you see some of the same people, makes the trip even better

Absolutely the best diving in Grand Cayman! Tom was a fantastic guide and took us to an amazing area with perfect visability and no one anywhere near us. It was so calm, the anchor line never tightened. We were surrounded by sea turtles and even saw our first shark! His background in marine biology was great as he had more knowledge about the area and the sealife than many others we encountered. His sharp wit was also entertaining during the beautiful boat ride to the dive site. If you don't have CML taking you out to dive while in Grand Cayman, you are missing out!
