This excursion is through Resort Sports Ltd. I was a little nervous as I could not find any reviews for this company on Trip Advisor. I also e-mailed and requested 100 cubic foot tanks for my husband, and they did not have these available. We met on the pier, there were 16 divers from our ship. They put us on a small bus for the very short drive to the pier they were using. Don't leave anything here (like shoes on the dock) as they will drop you off back at a the South Tender Harbor. We had 4 people from another cruise join us, and then we were off. Our boat with 20 divers was large and comfortable, with a full cover for shade. They divided us into 4 groups of 5 divers each. We did a wall dive first, then a reef dive. Pleasant dives, good visibility, no turtles :-(. No complaints, everyone was professional and safety conscious. Only offered water or fruit punch between dives. Read Less

Excellent dive boat, crew, gear and dive sites. The return to the ship was awful; took two hours from arrival at the pier due to tender malfunctions.

Good experience, but many people who take this don't seem to take safety seriously. Not a fault of the operator. The only thing was that the equipment was a bit close to end of life.

Our first port of call was Grand Cayman where we dived with Don Fosters. I have dived the Caymans many times but had never used Don Fosters. I was immediately impressed. The sop was clean and orderly. The staff friendly, professional and enthusiastic. They gave us a thorough briefing on the paperwork and what to expect. We asked for 4 short tanks and they said they would try, and then delivered. Two members of our party got rental gear and said the gear shop mentioned new mouthpieces (a first for me, and a welcome one!) and dive computers—then gave them a quick lesson in how to use the computers. The dive briefings were informative and I could tell the divemasters were excited about the dive sites. Sometimes you get the impression you’re diving the closest, quickest sites so they can get you back on the cruise ship but I really felt they were taking us to the sites they liked. One DM even said they seldom get to use one site in winter so they were excited that the weather was good enough to allow us on it. We had two new divers and I felt the DMs kept an eye on the group without restricting the more experienced divers. I would dive with this operation again, happily. Read Less
