Comments It had been a while since I had been diving, so I wanted to go to a place that I knew would be easy, both easy to get to and easy to dive. I also have many dives under my belt and don't really care for the cattle car experience. Based on reviews here and elsewhere, I choose Indigo Divers. Turned out to be a good choice of dive operation.

Diving in the Caymans was typical though I must say it seemed a bit depauperate compared to my memory. I'm not sure if that was because it was my first time diving the North shore or because things have changed in the 10+ years since my last visit.

Chris and Katie run what I can only call a truly service oriented operation. Prior to arrival, email communications were quickly answered and all paper work was completed using scanned images and email forms. When I got there, there was nothing to do but dive.

Each morning, they picked me up at my out of the way bed and breakfast and then brought me to their very comfortable boat. Indeed, the boat is so comfortable, there were times I was tempted to nap and catch some rays rather than get in the water. (It's got carpet for goodness sake!) When I was the only diver, there was no shifting me to another operator. I had the boat to myself.

Gear was left with them and set up and ready to go when I got on the boat. The only thing I needed to do after we got to the dive site was sit down on the back of the boat, slip on the gear that they held up for me and then do a forward roll into the water.

During the dives, either Chris or Katie escorted the dive. Since at most there were five or six of us on a dive it was very easy to dive as a group and never feel crowded. Chris and Katie were attentive, but we were free to roam and dive as we pleased. At dive's end, there was no rush to get back up on the boat as long as we had air remaining. It never felt rushed or regimented.

Surface intervals were on board with clean towels and oranges and brownies to die for. Rumor has it that the banana bread is even better but I am not able to confirm. Needless to say, Chris and Katie were genuinely friendly,a pleasure to dive and spend a surface interval with and made an effort to point out some interesting critters we ran across.

At dive's end I was quickly returned to my B&B to get ready for the next day.

Bottom line, a first class operation for the Cayman's
