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.

We did a shore dive, 2 dives on the south shore (stunning soft corals), and 3 dives on the west side (including the Balboa wreck and the Kittiwake wreck). Tons of wildlife,... More

Resort Scuba Course - I can't praise this company enough. Lauren was extremely patient with my wife and 11 yr old. They both took to scuba extremely fast and couldn't have had a better experience.

My son who is 23 and I had the pleasure of diving with them this past weekend and it was truly a fantastic time. Daniela was extremely helpful in booking everything with us over the phone the week before and the boat captain and dive masters were professional and helpful. Definitely will dive with them again.

I don't dive much anymore, but all of the employees took great care of me. I remember just enough to be competent, but not an expert when I dive so I have to have some help. They were great about offering help and making sure that my tank and reg was all done up properly. They double checked everything for... More

Great company. Cruise company set up this scuba dive, and I was very pleased with the company. Extremely professional and focused on safety. Took it to the West Wall and broke into groups, each escorted by a dive master. Second dive in shallower water required us to wait, and the staff insured we were well within safety parameters. Excellent dive... More

The next day we did a tour with them to Kittiwake wreck. We had a different instructor. All three on the boat were great. Very helpful and very friendly. Reasonably priced. I would... More
