It was our first time diving and it was an amazing experience. Our instructor, Katie (I think her name was Katie, I might be mistaken) and her assistant Reese were top notch. English is our second language, and they were very patient with us. I 100% recommend this place!!

My son, two nephews, and I had an awesome experience scuba diving for the first time. I always wanted to go scuba diving and this was the best place to go. The instructors are top notch and I felt very safe and secure at all times with the kids. Highly recommend Don Foster's Dive Cayman.

We arrived in port and were loaded onto a bus to go to Don Fosters. We were greeted by Don. He was our guide on this excursion. He went over safety issues and what to expect. We have snorkeled before so we were quite comfortable already. We were in the water about 45 minutes. It went by quick. I would... More

Learning to Scuba has always been on my "list" and when I saw it on Carnivals Excursion list I was excited. The thought of taking several days of classes back home was less than appealing so taking a beginner class on grand Cayman was a must do. Myself and three of our late teen kids took the five minute buss... More

Booked this from our carnival cruise. Daphne Tia was a great instructor. She took her time with our family making sure everyone was comfortable and that they were good to continue with the dive.
