Comments In Depth Watersports began operations in Grand Cayman in April of 2010. I would like to give them my highest endorsement and recommendation. The owner, Nat Robb was familiar to me in his previous position as a boat captain and instructor at Dive Tech. Nat and dive guide/instructor Chloe run a fantastic operation. Their boat is an incredibly fast 34 foot rigid inflatable former Navy Seal boat. It has been customized to provide very comfortable seating, excellent shade, dry storage, camera rinse bin, fresh water shower, and an excellent ladder for easy exits. Oxygen, marine band radio and cell phones are on board, as well as the standard coast guard safety and life preserver equipment. Unlike any other boat we have been on in the Caymans, this boat smoothly flew over the North Sound in seas that prohibited other boats from even attempting diving on the North Side. Even though Nat is one of the highest rated and experienced technical divers and instructors in the Carribean, he is laid back, warm, very friendly, and very anxious to go the extra mile to make sure your trip with him meets all of your expectations. Nat and Chloe will cater to divers of all levels, including OW students and relatively inexperienced divers. But what sets them apart is Nat's willingness and ability to dive the North side when other operators and boats can not. Experienced divers know that the North side boasts some of the very best diving on Grand Cayman, but most operators will not go there in the rougher weather. This can be very frustating. Nat however will get you there if anyone can! He will also go to the other areas of the island , or even to the Sister Islands. He will also let you dive your own profile within the no deco and 500 psi rule. My biggest fear is that once everyone finds out how good Nat, Chloe and In Depth Watersports is, I will not be able to book my favorite dive operator in Grand Cayman!
