I just returned from a terrific week in Grand Cayman. I dove with Cayman Marine Labs on the North Wall and the experience was outstanding. Tom took us to multiple unnamed sites and the corals were amazing. Tom does a great job to get you to the best sites.

I have been diving with Tom for 15 plus years. Each time I've dove with him tops the past dive experience. He's a marine biologist so not only am I enjoying the dive, i'm learning as well... I highly recommend this experience for any level of diver!!! Tom, thank you for all you do and continue to do!

I had a great time diving with Tom on 3 different days during my recent stay on Grand Cayman. He was very accommodating and helped me get comfortable again after a hiatus from diving for a few years. He is very knowledgeable and I enjoyed learning from him not only about diving but also about marine life overall. I'll definitely... More

Had a great time diving with Tom, and getting our certification! We always felt comfortable in his care, and now feel a lot more comfortable diving. Tom was great at pointing out interesting things while mixing the cert stuff with exploring. The wall was truly amazing. We are really glad we chose Tom and Marine lab.

Have done many dives but have never had a better experience than the week with Tom and his team at Cayman Marine Labs. They found great sites, were so fun and very helpful with less experienced divers. Even provided some eduction about the marine life between dives. Highly recommend them!!!!

We are having fun because we love showing you a great new dive site each time you go out with CML. It cost much more to keep you away from the tired sites the others frequent but we figure you are worth it More
