Comments The service provide by Cayman University Divers was outstanding. I called Brad Nelson (Owner/Operator/Captain/Guide) to see about setting up a dive for myself and an Intro to Scuba for my wife. I mentioned that we would be arriving on Friday 1/10/14 via Carnival Cruise. He went over the predicted weather conditions for the day we would leave on the cruise (1/5/14) and they were horrible, 25 to 35 mph winds. He called again the day before the cruise would leave and he arranged to have us picked up and for my wife to take the Intro through a fellow instructor. He committed to the dive even if I were the only customer. I am NAUI Instructor and was a Dive Master/Guide in Puerto Rico so I know how unusual it is for a dive operation to commit to a solo diver. Everything went like clock work. We were picked up right on time and delivered back to the cruise ship with plenty of time to spare. The diving was great! First was Trinity Caves - a marvelous place with plenty of marine life. It's not really caves but more of a grotto that you go through. At the end we reached a depth of 108 feet where a wall continued downward but we turned and headed back and up. Second dive was the wreck of the Oro Verde and the abutting Peter Reef. Plenty of marine life including nurse shark, rays, a huge Puffer Fish, lots of angels (French, Grey, Queen), sea turtles, spotted morays and many others.
A really neat and innovative thing that Brad has is narrated scuba tours. He can tell you about and point out different marine life during the dive. A very unique item.
I am looking forward to diving with Brad Nelson and Cayman University Divers in the not too distant future. Brad is knowledgeable about the area and the marine life is a man of his word. A rarity in todays world.
