Comments I had 2 2-tank morning dives with Indigo Divers, operated by Cris & Kate. Their limit is 6 divers maximum. This is a fantastic way to dive without crowds. The boat is spacious enough for 6 divers. There were no divers with large photo equipment on my dives. This was my 1st time diving in Grand Cayman, & I was a solo, which was not a problem. Most of the other divers on the boat were repeat customers of Indigo, as will I on my next visit. I contacted Indigo through email several weeks before I left home & they responded promptly with available dates. All credit card info & waiver forms were handled by email so I didn't have to deal with paper-work the day of diving. A van picked me up precisely on time for a very short ride to the boat, & the boat departed on time. Chris & Kate are very experienced & provided a very welcoming & fun dive environment. There were good explanations of each dive site before hitting the water. Max dive depth for the 1st dive was 100' with most of that dive between 40' - 70'. The 2d dive is shallower. The diving is very relaxed with plenty of time to explore. We saw the usual Caribbean reef fish, with a small nurse shark, plenty of large groupers, etc. Kate is fantastic at spotting small critters which substantially added to the experience!!! I stayed at Aqua Bay Club, which is a 21 unit condo. This was my 3d time. The condo is on 7 mile beach but at the northern end closer to West Bay, away from the crowds, & not too far from where the Indigo boat departs & returns. The 2 bedroom units are very spacious, with well appointed amenities. I will continue to dive with Indigo next time I return to Grand Cayman.
