Comments Chris and Kate run a great operation. Kate was very responsive by email to set up a 2 afternoon charter for a family trip, and Chris was available by phone on our arrival to answer last minute questions. Porpoise of the trip was to get our 12 and 14 year old nephews' check out dives completed, and Beck was a wonderful instructor. She picked us up from our hotel (the swanky Cayman Cotton Tree) right on time, and our nephews had a terrific and very safe experience with her. Indigo uses sweet boats-we were on a Sea Ray Bow Rider, with fully padded seats-check out their website for pics. Both sun and shaded areas on the boat, and they always run small groups, so plenty of room, and super comfortable. Fruit and sweets and drinks between dives. Chris was driving and took care of all of the gear. As we were doing check out dives, we didn't get to dive the North Wall, but Day 2 was a beautiful calm day, so we dove the northwest corner of the island, with the certified divers enjoying a mini wall to 75 feet while the boys stayed on top of the wall at 40 feet. Appreciated Chris' efforts to make sure everyone had a fun time. He has a sharp eye for the little stuff, and will point out the lettuce slug as well as the nurse shark if you're interested, but also allows divers to spread out and find their own favorite fish. Bottom time 1 hour or 700 psi, no excessive checking of gauges, we dove Nitrox. Will definitely use Indigo again!
