Comments I had originally booked with Peter Milburn based on a personal recommendation. When Peter didn't have enough divers to send out his boat, he arranged for me to dive with DNS and sent along his Divemaster Lisa. The DNS boat is a pontoon tri-hull, similar to what you would normally find on an inland lake, but beefed up for the Cayman waters. The large flat triple hull provides a very stable platform for diving and a lot of space for set up and relaxation.

I dove with them on two days, each a two tank dive. Each day the first dive was a wall dive with depth limited to 100 feet, but we did stray a little bit deeper. The time at 100 was short enough that there was still plenty of time left on the top of the reef at 50-60 feet so that you didn't feel rushed in and out of the water. The second dive was always on the top of the reef at 50-60 feet.

The waters are very clear and the marine live abundant, so that whether we were on the wall or the reef, there were always interesting things to see.

Jerry and Dusty from DNS, together with Lisa from Petet Milburn's led interesting dives and made sure that everyone had a good time.

This was my first time in the Caymans, but I would recommend both DNS and Peter Milburn. Even though I didn't really dive with Peter, he went out of his way to make sure my trip was a success.
