Comments Off The Wall Divers is a small dive operation which operates close to downtown Georgetown, Grand Cayman. Tom Shropshire and his crew (Meghan and Kelly) are extremely professional and provide a caring, personalized and friendly dive experience for all their guests. Their excellence continues throughout your entire diving trip: from the time they pick you up at your local hotel/accommodations, to the diving, to their knowledge of the various site, and the care to ensure that your gear is cared for properly. They are small enough to give that specialized personal care that we all desire, rather than the large 'cattle-car' environment of the larger dive operators. With over 2500+ dives around the world Off The Wall Divers ranks as one of my top, and I would highly recommend them.

The diving in Grand Cayman is excellent and the various dive sites available give an enormous variety for the novice to professional. I had the pleasure of diving twice with Off The Wall in 2014 and the service was consistently excellent. Our last dive on this last trip was one of the best. It was at Kent's Caves and due to the constant currents it was a drift dive for a good half mile: in and out of the caves for the first half of the dive then floating along the reef siting a large school of tarpon, a large stingray eating a lobster, two large turtles, a large free-swimming green eel, and a large school of horse-eyed jacks, plus more. I am ready to go back!
