On April 1st, 1996 Divers Down was established by two friends Steve Surrey and Andy Porter who met whilst working at Bob Soto's Diving as dive instructors. Their vision was to open their own company where they would cater to small groups so that each guest would receive the attention they deserved.
Their way of thinking proved popular and through hard work, tons of experience, friendly personalized service and a lot of repeat custom over the years Divers Down now boasts a fleet of three dive boats and numerous members of staff in multiple locations. In some ways the company has expanded enormously, however, the basic philosophy has remained the same; still only small groups and personalized service which is always professional and friendly.
In 2004 Divers Down acquired the exclusive in-house dive and snorkel operation at the luxurious Holiday Inn Resort Grand Cayman overlooking the stunning North Sound. Guests of the resort experience exceptional service with the added convenience of having a dive shop conveniently located on the premises.
A dedicated training division was opened in 2006, which holds the prestigious rating of a PADI Five Star Resort. All levels of dive education are offered including introductory Discover Scuba for the first time diver to the professional rating for future PADI dive instructors.
The latest edition to the Divers Down family is our branch which specializes in providing dive and snorkel opportunities for cruise ship passengers. This department offers an alternative to the dive excursions booked directly on the cruise ship for a more intimate experience. The trips are customized specifically for the ships’ itineraries to ensure plenty of time to enjoy your diving excursion while in port for the day.
