Comments It's been too long since I visited the Cayman Islands; this visit, I carefully read reviews on dive operators and selected Indigo Divers for four days of diving; we stayed at the Marriott Beach Resort on 7 mile beach. Both were excellent choices; Chris and Kate of Indigo Divers are outstanding dive operators and guides; they adapt dive profiles very well for divers equipped with computers, taking full advantage of the flexibility offered. It maximizes your underwater time and enjoyment. Their boat(s) are well equipped and comfortable. Carrying a maximum of six divers, you'll feel like a pampered friend...not livestock herded from pasture to stockyard. Their pre-dive briefings are very well done, helping you appreciate what you'll soon see underwater. They are watchful and available should you need assistance, but not obtrusive. You can count on both Kate and Chris to keep an eye out for special finds and to do everything possible to make your dives pleasant and memorable. When I return to Cayman, I'll dive with Indigo. Their love and care for this special undersea environment is obvious. They truly set the standard for what a dive operation can and should be.

UW Photo Comments Dive guides/boat operator was very helpful, with a fresh water rinse hose (a rinse bucket would be a handy addition). The guides were outstanding in looking for, finding and pointing out interesting subject matter.
