Comments Absolutely among the best dive operations ever experienced. Comfortable, clean boat with padded seats, 6 divers max, I usually had 1-2 others, sometimes all by myself. Easy entries and exits, they help you all around getting in and out. Kate and Greg are very knowledgeable guides and photographers themselves. Courteous, funny, great dive guides. Bring you to sites mainly in NW part of island where the cattle boats stay away from. Let you stay down as long as you can, point out critters all along the way. Cayman is not what it was 20 years ago in terms of fish life, but still good for the Caribbean. Good variety of fish, sponges, corals, turtles. No big stuff, not much macro. Used mid-range lense; wide angle no good because of stuff in water/viz not gin clear this trip. Fresh fruit, water, soda, cookies, towels between dives. Well worth the somewhat higher prices! Nitrox available. I did up to 4 dives per day, depending on how I felt. If you go to Cayman with 6 or fewer, Indigo is the ticket. They divide up experienced from air hogs and make it good for all.
