Comments A rare combination of a dive operator that provides outstanding service while managing the business side as well as any I've experienced. Communication in arranging the dive was great with timely emails that included complete information on where to meet, what to expect and available options. Gary, the owner/skipper, was experienced and knowledgeable with much more insight provided on dive sites than I've heard during numerous other trips to Cayman. Briefings on the both the boat and dives were thorough; equipment provided to those in our group that rented was in great condition; strong emphasis on safety, and most importantly - everyone really enjoyed the experience. The dive sites were good, not great but suited those in our group that are new to diving. Gary and his partner (and soon to be wife) Liz sound committed to running a top notch dive operation that caters to small groups and hopefully will be around for a long while.
