I spent 6 days diving with Chris and Kate Alpers towards the end of
September, having read rave reviews about Indigo Divers. I wasnt sure
whether my high expectations could be met, but they were exceeded -

Kate collected the divers each morning from our various accommodations on
Seven Mile Beach and was always cheery.  We then boarded Indigo Divers
excellent dive boat, The Cats Meow, either at the Yacht Club or the Town
Pier. Kate and Chris are happy to rinse and stow their divers gear
overnight so there is minimal lugging of kit involved.  

The Cats Meow is  in my experience at least  an unusual dive boat in that
it is small, fast, immaculate and super-comfortable. With a maximum of 6
divers on board Chris can make great time to the chosen dive sites and we
were always early into the water.   Entry to the water is an easy forwards
or sideways roll from the back platform, and at the end of the dive Chris
lifts your gear back onto the platform leaving you to climb the couple of
steps up the ladder with ease.   The post-dive towels/soft drinks/cookies
were top notch.   

In the water both Chris and Kate are excellent dive leaders  calm, relaxed
and highly observant. As well as keeping a good eye on their divers, they
both pointed out numerous fascinating creatures  especially the small
stuff that is so easy to miss.  Once they had the measure of divers
competence they were happy to let us dive our computer restrictions/air
supply without imposing fixed dive times. I logged three dives of almost
100 minutes. Being a small operation there is a flexibility and
understanding of each divers needs that can be missing from larger
outfits, however well intentioned. During the week my fellow divers ranged
from newly qualifieds to some with many hundreds of hours of bottom time 
Chris and Kate were unfailingly helpful and courteous to us all, offering
advice  and tips when appropriate.  

I am already looking forward to coming back to Grand Cayman next year to
dive with Indigo Divers and would heartily recommend them to divers with
any level of experience.
