Comments We just returned from a trip to Grand Cayman and spent a week diving with Indigo Divers located at Seven Mile beach. We had a fantastic week with them: we did 18 dives with them over a 5 day period.

Key strengths of their business:

-owner/operated by husband and wife team Chris and Kate Alpers
-simple but effective booking process
-competitive pricing
-sleek, "fast to sites" dive boats
-first on sites
-timely and complimentary transport to and from hotel to dock
-2 tank AM run, and based on schedule and demand, 2 tank PM schedule
-high level of personal service and attention.
-attention to safety
-6 diver maximum on the boat

Chris and Kate went out of their way to ensure all divers enjoyed their time with Indigo to the fullest extent possible. The diving was fun and very relaxed, made interesting by them as we explored the North Wall and the associated reefs. They are both very accomplished dive professionals. We highly recommend their dive operation to anyone looking for quality dive services in Grand Cayman.
