Comments Great diving and Divers Down made sure we got to really enjoy it. They took care of the gear and tried hard not to repeat dives for anyone unless requested. North Shore diving seas were a little rough but worth it. Hammerhead greeted us on the wall! Beautiful walls on the north shore and nice east side coral reef diving as well. "Aquarium" was our favorite shallow dive for photography and a lot of small critters. We requested that site and they took us as soon as conditions were right. This was our third trip to Grand Cayman and our 2nd time with Divers Down. We highly recommend them to all levels of divers. Boats were not overcrowded and service was personalized, friendly, and helpful.
