Comments Indigo Getting High Marks In Grand Cayman:

My wife and I spent our Thanksgiving holiday in Grand Cayman diving with Chris and Kate Alpers of Indigo Divers. We each did 14 dives with them over the Thursday-Sunday period. It goes without saying that each successive dive was better than the previous. Chris and Kate put us on dive sites teeming with life, both large and small. Nurse sharks, Morays the size of small pontoons, squadrons of Eagle rays, as well as took the time to point out some of the most amazing small critter life I had seen to date. They are passionate about their work, and it shows in every regard.

Their boat and dive amenities are great. They are large enough to provide ample room, but small enough(6 or less divers) that you can meet your fellow divers and get to know them in way that is not possible on the larger open boat forums. We met some great people, and made a number of new friends.

All in all Indigo puts togther a very nice package for divers which in our opinion is not available with the other operators in Grand Cayman. Their combined expertise in Grand Cayman diving far exceeds most of the other operators, and they are very willing to share their experiences in a very welcoming and humble way.

We look forward to many more days of vacation diving with Kate and Chris in the future.
