“Diving The Dream!”
“We dove with Gary and Scott from October 12- October 20, 2010.
The boat was spacious & clean with beverages, fresh fruit and a dry towel. A truly full-service dive operation. Despite troubling weather conditions, Gary made sure we were able to enjoy many safe and excellent dives. While confident but not arrogant, Gary and Scott were both the most pleasant and welcoming dive masters we have ever worked with. We really appreciated their prompt responses to questions both before and during our stay. Liz and Gary offered great suggestions for ways to make our 3rd trip to Grand Cayman special and unique: We bought and ripened the recommended “huge” avocado unlike you can get anywhere here in the midwest, stopped for marinated conch on the way to Rum Point after a peaceful trip to visit the blue igunanas at the botanical gardens and baked the best fresh red snapper from the fish market. (We likely would not have known to do these things except for Liz & Gary). We will definitely dive with Living the Dream Divers on our next trip.”
“LTD is truly something special, even on an island with other fantastic choices for dive outfits.”
“Ours was a diverse group: a couple of us had been diving for many years, others for a few, and still others who had just been newly certified. It was no small feat to find a dive outfit that would be able to respond to smoothly to us all. Liz, Gary and their crew were flexible and sensitive to the individual needs and styles of each person they had diving with them. They made sure to take us to fantastic, off the beaten track sites, filling in our equipment gaps with the finest rental gear I have ever seen. Actually, theirs was so fabulous, that now my husband wants to replace some of his own with what he used from LTD! Their boat was a unique easy on/easy off flat design that was very user friendly. We especially loved the oranges they gave us during our SIT time. Overall, Living The Dream Divers was beyond outstanding, on an island where excellent alternatives abound.”
“THE diving outfit to use on Grand Cayman”
“A big thanks to Gary, Liz and company for a week of fantastic diving! Can’t say enough about what a terrific dive operation these folks run. Great boat. Immaculate equipment. An approach to diving that is very relaxed and fun-loving, but always completely professional. And, they’re very gifted at tailoring their instruction to the various needs and abilities of their student divers. I very much look forward to diving with them again!”
“Terrific afternoon snorkeling with a few friends – much better than a large group tour.”
“Vacationing on Grand Cayman last week we (4 friends) were looking for island experiences beyond the typical group tour. A charter with “Living the Dream Divers” fit the bill. Discussing with Liz (one of the owners) our desire for a small-group afternoon snorkeling trip she suggested a west coast excursion including visits to three diverse snorkel sites. Three days later, Gary (the other owner) and boat hand Johann took us on a wonderful expedition – a highlight of our wonderful vacation. Everything about our experience was positive: our guides were welcoming, knowledgeable, and fun; the snorkel sites they picked were interesting and un-crowded; the trip was reasonably priced. I would highly recommend Living the Dream Divers to anyone visiting Grand Cayman. They can accommodate groups from expert divers to novice snorkelers, or even people not looking to swim at all.”
