If you want to enjoy scuba diving and do some great diving in Grand Cayman with the best dive captain in Grand Cayman, you need to dive with Tom Byrnes in Grand Cayman-Tel (--)and the web page caymanmarinelab.com.
Tom is a marine biologist who has lived and been diving in Grand Cayman for over 20 years. He knows the best dive sites and takes you to dive sites that others may not go to. Tom will also take you to dive sites that you request or try to accommodate you if you prefer to dive in calmer water. Diving with Tom is like diving with one of your best friends. If you need lessons or are an experienced certified diver, Tom will take good care of you. He can tell you all about the sea life and answer any questions you may have about anything under the water. Tom also can help you with hotel/condo and restaurant recommendations since many of his island friends run some of the best restaurants on the island. We have been diving with Tom for over 15 years and have many enjoyable experiences. I have taken my daughter diving with Tom and also gone with my buddies so Tom can accommodate families or friends or individuals. We have always had fun diving with Tom whether a shallow dive or a deep dive and have seen many different types of sea life.

I have been diving since 1976 and have dove all over the Caribbean: Little Cayman-Bonaire-Aruba-Antiqua-Curaco-Cayman Brac-All over the Mexican Yucatan etc. and one of my favorite places is Grand Cayman for several reasons. Most importantly my wife loves it there, ha, ha. I have been to GC at least 8 times and by far my favorite diving operation on the 7 Mile Beach end is:
Cayman Marine Lab's that is owned and operated by:
Tom Byrnes, PhD in Marine Biology
Cayman Marine Lab

Tom's knowledge of the sea life is unsurpassed. The ease of diving with Tom is unreal, especially for GC. He checks you out and if you know what your doing, "dive you computer". If you need help he is there. His boats are roomy and he fills you in on all the little stuff. His stories and experiences with GC and Nat'l Geo. are really funny. If you looking for a professional that knows how to handle all levels of diving and you really want to know about sea life take my advice and experience of diving for the past 33 years and go with his outfit.
I dove with some of the bigger outfits and you are nothing but cattle, follow the herd and come up in 30 min. Trust me Cayman Marine Lab is your best bet. Go to his web site and do a little research. http://caymanmarinelab.com/
