Comments We have been diving with Indigo Divers for seven years now - 4 times a year! For my wife and I, it wouldn't be Grand Cayman without diving every day, and it wouldn't be diving without going with Indigo. The owners Captain Chris and his wife Kate are extremely customer-oriented, and every aspect of your diving experience will reflect their attention to detail to ensure you have great dives. Within this past year, they have added Instructor Meghan to the team. As if the Indigo experience couldn’t get better, it did with Meghan’s broad offering of instruction, specialty courses, and night shore dives – as well as being the happiest and most enthusiastic dive master on the island!

Indigo has a 6-diver maximum and their fast, comfortable boats are customized to make your dive experience easy and enjoyable. As needed to meet customer demand, they often run 2 boats offering morning and afternoon 2-tank dives (Nitrox available). They run a shuttle van to pick up / drop off at your lodging place, and most of the year they operate off their private dock on West Bay. They always select the best locations, optimized for the conditions that day, and they take into account the desires and skills of those onboard. For example, if there are experienced divers mixed with newer divers, one dive master will ensure nice, full dives for the first group, while the newer divers can surface earlier with another dive master, as needed. If you’re into photography, the entire team are expert “critter spotters” and their knowledge of the fish, reefs, and underwater life is amazing. If you're looking for the best dive experience in the Caribbean, Indigo Divers is a "must book" for you! But book you must, because my wife & I already have our reservations set for our next four trips! :)

UW Photo Comments Given the boat limit of 6 guests, there's plenty of room for your camera gear and a rinse hose is readily available as needed. No worries about having your photography stuff knocked around by a large crowd! And with the small group, no crowds to disturb your underwater picture-taking!
