I have used Indigo Divers in Grand Cayman ( on two
occasions now, most recently in March, 2008 and can say it is a dive
operation like no other, PERIOD!  Forget 5 Star service, Chris and his wife
Kate deliver 6 Star service consistently.  Both are expert guides who are
totally focused on their guests having the best dive experience ever.  They
are knowledgeable about all the local "critters" and are eager to
point them out.  Instead of diving the well beaten reefs of Seven Mile
Beach, they take you to sites on the North and South shore, weather
permitting.  The reefs there appear to be in better shape than Seven Mile. 
They operate only small trips (6 divers or less) on a 35' Donzi cruiser
that is more like a mini yacht.  This boat is both fast, comfortable on
rough seas and luxurious.  The aft deck sitting area provides full
protection from wind, weather and sun.  For the sun worshipers, there's
plenty of space on the foredeck.  Between dive snacks include cookies, soft
drinks and fresh fruit.  I can't recall even getting two of those on a dive
boat.  It was through Indigo Divers that I first was exposed to the South
Shore of Grand Cayman which has some of the most spectacular shallow dives
I've ever been on.  These sites (Bullwinkle's and Laura's reef) are 35-60
feet deep, have deep canyons, many swim-throughs including a large 80 foot
long tunnel, and a wide variety of coral formations and critters.  The
North side is also spectacular with choices of dive sites.  One, Eagle Ray
Pass was true to its name as several were observed off in the deep.  The
lobster population seems to be exploding on the North Shore as well as are
the turtles.  Indigo Divers are the only dive operation who can take you to
the "Money Reef" -- forget fish, my son found $5 CY stuck in the
coral <G>. Due to offshore storms, the seas were rougher than is
usual for Grand Cayman and the vis was less than the ideal Caymans are
noted for.  Nonetheless, the afternoon dives were enjoyable.  On one trip,
my son and I were the only divers on board.  Talk about feeling pampered. 
If there could be a Ritz-Carlton of dive operations, then Indigo Divers
would surely be it.  I'll surely be back.  Why on earth would you want to
get on a cattle boat when you can be on the Indigo "yacht" for
the same price?? Our lodging at the Marriott Beachfront has taken a
significant drop in quality from previous trips there, rooms were damp and
air cond weak.  Outside facilities were good, but considering the service
we received from the front desk (had to change rooms due to a flood from
upstairs) I will stay elsewhere.  Fav restaurants are Mezza, Calipso Grill
and the Wharf
