I booked with Indigo Divers based on the Undercurrent reviews. Wise choice. Kate and Chris took good care of us during our six days of diving.

We paid a little more booking with Indigo, but it was worth it. I loved having only a few divers on the boat and the extra attention. Fresh fruit and cookies in between dives was a nice touch.

This was my third trip to Grand Cayman and it will not be my last. I love the healthy reefs and the beautiful walls. If my group is small enough, I will dive with Indigo again. They run a first class operation.


Lighthouse Point (Dive Tech) and Turtle Reef at the Cracked Conch were easy shore dives.


We stayed here at the recommendation of Kate at Indigo Divers. I loved it. We booked a one bedroom ocean front. It was on the third floor (no elevator). We had two full baths, washer/dryer, full kitchen, dining room, living room, screened patio, daily maid service and free WiFi. The reservation staff and onsite staff were friendly and helfpul. Checkin/checkout was a breeze. We booked a special, five nights, two free.

While technically on 7 Mile Beach, Plantana is away from all the hustle and bustle. It was very quiet. Their private section of beach was wonderful.

Divers have so much stuff and I like having the extra room that a condo provides.
