“Living the Dream Divers is "Living the Dream"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2014

This has been our second year diving with the entire crew here in Grand Cayman. Each year has been the absolute best time scuba diving as a family. The professionalism, organization, and overall helpfulness is second to none. The entire staff did not treat us as customer's but like one of the family.

“lives up to the name”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2014

Living the Dream divers managed to be both highly efficient in their operation, and relaxing/not hurried at the same time. I highly recommend them. They are truly a World Class diving operation. You can't go wrong.

Do check ahead of time, as they can book up (and rightly so).

“"First Class Dive Operation"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2014

Just returned from a dive trip to Grand Cayman, and I must say, Living the Dream is one of The Best Dive Operators that we have had the pleasure to dive with. I am an experienced diver, but my son is recently certified. Gary and Liz made us very comfortable from the moment we stepped onto the boat. My son needed to rent a BC, and the one he was given was new and well maintained. The Boats are very clean and also very well maintained. We received excellent service from everyone involved during each dive trip. Carl, Blair, Scott, and Tom are superb guides. They took care of our equipment, and made sure that getting into the deep blue was very easy and relaxed. Homemade snacks provided by Liz are a special bonus. We will be back!

“Wow. World Class diving and World Class Dive Operator!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2014

Grand Cayman is truly a World Class diving destination. We had a group of six and I have to say Gary and Liz made every aspect of our dive vacation easy. From the valet service from the condo to the boat and back, to the excellent briefings, safe dives at awesome spots. Not to mention Liz's home made banana chocolate chunk muffins and chocolate chunk cookies.

We dove primarily with Curtis and Scotty, although as a treat Gary and Liz took us on Saturday. With five or six divers it is economical to charter the entire boat, and have the freedom to dive at your leisure, and at your comfort level. Whether diving the incredible wall locations or the more shallow reefs and wrecks, our diving experience was diverse, safe, and hugely enjoyable.

Living the Dream is a very busy operator, so if you want to dive with or charter them, do so early. Having worked in the Dive industry before as a dive guide, I have to say the level of care and safety, plus personalized service, was second to none.

I don't think you can have a bad experience with these folks, and we had Chamber of Commerce weather for our entire trip. If you're on the fence on whether you want to dive Grand Cayman I highly recommend the primarily family-friendly scene, and can't recommend Living the Dream divers any more heartily.

Thanks Liz and Gary for having a great crew, spotless boats, and overall an awesome attitude, lending itself to the best dive vacation EVER!

“Superior Dive Operation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2014

If you're the type of diver who wants to do everything yourself, LTD is not the dive operator for you. If however, you want to go on vacation and be spoiled, then look no further. From the occasional baked treats at snack time between dives made by Liz herself (the co-owener with her husband Gary), to the great dive guides (particularly Carl) who make your time onboard such a pleasure, these are the people to dive with.
They don't over fill their boats at the expense of diver comfort and the boats themselves are great. Heck you don't even pick up your tank, you just take a seat with your mask and fins on at their custom seats and they help you gear up before a short stride into the blue and it's a similarly lazy experience on coming back to the boat.
I guess I could keep going, but it's simply easier to say.....do yourself a favor!
