Comments We dove with a lot of operators over the years at least 25 to 30 trips to the Caymans. Over the 25 to 30 trips we have taken and of all the operators we have dove with none have been more attentive or willing to make sure our diving trip was enjoyable. Chris and Kate are two of the nicest and most down to earth owner operators we have met. Their enthusiasm for diving and the environment is refreshing to say the least. They both go out of their way to find special little creatures that you may otherwise over look to photograph or to just view. We would not consider diving with anyone else now that we know such quality individuals are available to us. We intend to return to Cayman and dive with indigo divers yearly as long as we are able. Kate is also well qualified to document your trip with excellent videos which she has done for us and we are more than pleased with the results. One of the other things we like is that they do not take more than six divers on the boat. We have nothing but accolades for Chris and Kate and would not consider going anywhere else. We stayed at Plantana situated on 7 mile beach. That part of 7 mile beach was Plantana’s private little beach. The rooms we clean and complete with small kitchen. All amenities including washer and dryer we included. The staff was helpful, friendly and accommodating in everyway. They went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable.

UW Photo Comments We dove the west end of the island. We have been scuba diving in the Caymans for 39 years. This trip we saw everything from macro to healthy corals and fish life as good if not better than the first trip to the Caymans we made and we have dove the north, south east and west of the island.
