DON FOSTER'S DIVE CAYMAN is a full-service dive operation in the Cayman Islands. Established on Grand Cayman since 1982 and located on the waterfront 3/10 mile south of George Town, Don Foster’s is fronted by Casuarina Point Reef, where you will find excellent shore diving and snorkeling. We have a large dive shop offering dive and snorkel gear rental, t-shirts, souvenirs, drinks and snacks. Our boat diving package rates are the lowest on the island and we will work with you to make your diving experience memorable, whether you want to dive a lot (check out 20-tank special) or a little. Don Foster’s Dive is the place to go for experience, excellent customer service and a great dive experience.

Had a great time diving with Keith Kimbrough! Upon arrival all equipment was set out awaiting us. Keith made the dive a lot of fun and even woke up a sleeping nurse shark for us to see. After our second time using Don Foster's, we would highly recommend booking activities with them! -Alvin and Calvin Neff

This is the best dive outfit we have used on several of our visits to Grand Cayman. Their dive masters are always great, the boats are fantastic and the dive sites cannot be beat! You cannot go wrong picking them to dive with.

Don Foster's is the original recreational dive shop...and one of the best! Today Russell, a longtime local dive master, took my son and me out on a guided shore dive, and was nothing short of spectacular. Although we are PADI certified, we are novice divers and he was patient and kind with both of us. We thoroughly enjoyed our time... More

We celebrated thanksgiving by going scuba diving for the first time. I always thought it would be scary, but once you are down there, you get hooked. Saw a turtle and swam through caves. Breathtaking.

I was so nervous but the guys were very informative. There was 30 some odd people on out boat and still feel like the 2 of them gave us all enough attention. They even checked on me when I just needed a break to breathe normally. Would 100% use them again!
