Comments We were completely satisfied with the service and facilities that Kate and Chris provided with Indigo divers. They are both very hard workers and it is obvious their goal is to provide great service for their customers.

The icing on the cake was they are both instructors and since we only had 60 dives when we arrived we learned a lot diving with them.

They use smaller boats, and we never had over six divers at any one time, so there is plenty of personal attention. They are very safety oriented without being over bearing, it was apparent they were always concerned about our safety. We would definitely use their service again if we went back.

We stayed at Sunshine Suites, and had a bedroom suite which includes a small kitchen. The room was excellent, and perfect for our do it yourself approach. We would stay here again. Check out the resort grill, the burgers and Havana chicken dishes are great. Eating out in the Caymans is expensive, so having the chance to prepare your own meals saves a lot.

We typically made 2 boat dives in the morning, and one shore dive at different locations in the afternoon. (Need to rent a car for this.) The dive to Sting Ray city is fabulous, there is a reason it is called the best 15ft dive available!
