Comments Ocean Frontiers is the premier dive op on Grand Cayman. They have valet diving which means that once you get your gear in their hands, they set it up, change tanks between dives, take gear off the boat (in bins they provide), rinse it, hang it, and have it on the boat ready for you on your next dive. They are also supremely safety oriented and make sure that every one dives safely and respects the environment they are in (namely, the Ocean). Everyone here is very customer oriented and will everything in their power to ensure their guests have a positive experience. In the last couple of years, they have added Eagle Ray's Restaurant on the sundeck by the pool and it is a huge hit. When you go, you MUST try the Lionfish Tacos-they are the best! They also have a divers night buffet that has many local favorites and is very well done. And if you aren't hungary, there is still a full bar to enjoy a cocktail and hang out watching the ocean. There is not enough good I can say about Ocean Frontiers and how they work to make your vacation successful.
