Comments After reading many reviews from Undercurrent we chose to dive with Indigo Divers for our first trip to Grand Cayman. Chris & Kate did an exceptional job and provided personable and professional service on our four days of diving with them. Each morning either Kate or Chris would pick us up from our resort and from there on every stitch of work was left to them. Chris set up our gear and always changed tanks during our surface intervals. He also helped us into and out of our gear on every dive. We were able to leave all our gear with them the entire week making our daily trek less cumbersome.
Indigo Diver's 28 ft. Sea Ray is the most comfortable dive boat I have ever been on and with a limit of six divers there was plenty of room for all.
Since this was our first visit to the island we chose to have Chris pick out the dive sites and to also lead us on tours. Each dive was well described with discussion on topography and expected sealife encounters.
All diving on this trip was on the north wall which had beautiful coral formations, great swim throughs and a few neat coral heads teaming with small fish. We did see a few Nurse and Reef Sharks, Spotted Eagle, Southern and Yellow Rays, an assortment of eels and all the usual reef fish & creatures including some cool nudibranchs.

As mentioned by previous reader reports...diving with Chris & Kate is like diving with friends. We highly recommend them if you are planning a trip to Grand Cayman!
