“Great experience”
Reviewed July 20, 2014

Myself and my partner were recommended Living the Dream by family- like us, relatively inexperienced divers. During our 2 week stay we used many of the dive operators, in order to get a good comparison. Although a little more pricey than the others, Living the Dream were great. Well equipped boat with good facilities on board, experienced guides who seemed very aware of our abilities and were able to bring out our adventurous streak! Dive to the Kittiwake was awesome, brilliant route around making sure we saw everything and even managed to get a swim through or two in there too! Would definitely use again when visiting family in Grand Cayman.

“Fantastic diving outfit”
Reviewed July 16, 2014

Our 10 year old daughter did her PADI openwater referral with Living the Dream, and my husband and I did several boat dives with them. This is an outstanding diving school. Tom, who instructed our daughter, was brilliant: he talked to her like an adult but at the same time he put her at her ease. The boats are new, clean, well equipped and uncrowded. The diving team do *everything* for you, including opening and closing your air. I felt like Marie Antoinette as they put the BCD and tank on me. All I had to do was jump off the boat and have fun. The dive guides explained very well what were were going to see on the forthcoming dive, and the signs they would use for the various fish.

The dives themselves were all spectacular, especially Trinity Caves. We saw turtles, sting rays, tarpon, black durgeon, parrot fish, snapper, lion fish and many more. Thrilling from start to finish.

“Great dive operation”
Reviewed July 15, 2014 via mobile

Dove two days with Living the Dream. Wish we could have done more but they were booked up. We were told there are a lot of repeat customers and to book as far in advance as possible if you are looking for multiple days of diving. That being said, we booked for two days of diving the week before our trip. We may have gotten lucky though! Each day we started with a wall dive 80-100 ft and then a shallow reef dive 40-50 ft. Amazingly clear water with very healthy coral and wildlife. We saw a sea turtle, a large green moray eel, lots of lobsters, crab and lots of fish and coral. Dive guides were awesome and everyone we met from Living the Dream were very friendly and accommodating. They even provided transportation to the dock from your hotel each day which was very convenient. I would definitely book with them again!

“Over The Top Staff & Service”
Reviewed July 14, 2014

Having dove with guide services around the world Living The Dream provides a truly, all around "Over The Top" dive experience. From boats, gear, staff, courtesy, service, valet, and home cooked goodies by Liz.

First dive right off the bat my regulator is handed to me by Curtis, back on boat before pulling anchor, equipment is readied for next dive, boat was chartered for 2 weeks every day upon return our equipment was cleaned and ready to go for next dive.

My daughter 14 very nervous and anxious received certification through Scotty. The one on one attention from Scotty relaxed her anxiety and a superb first dive experience was accomplished as well as certification.

Living The Dream divers made our vacation and first time Cayman experience truly "Over The Top"

“Continuing the Dream”
Reviewed July 12, 2014

This is the first time back since 2 yeas ago and it was long overdue. The dives were fantastic as always and it was like visiting good friends and not just being dive customers. You cannot do better if you want to dive Grand Cayman! From valet pick up to last goodbyes you are treated like family.
