About
DNS Diving is committed to helping you discover the most amazing dive sites in Grand Cayman, from the sheer drop offs of our famous walls, to the adventurous wrecks and breathtaking reefs that have made Grand Cayman one of the top diving destinations in the world. DNS Diving (formerly known as: Dive N’ Stuff) was founded in 1993 by divers for divers. Our goals are simple; smaller dive groups, longer bottom times and safe, easy, flexible diving, all of which enable us to provide more personal attention to our divers and build great friendships. From a beach pick-up by boat outside your hotel or condo, to our friendly and knowledgeable staff setting up your dive equipment; we ensure that our guests keep coming back year after year. All our dives are guided by our professional instructors, but you are free to dive with a buddy at your own pace if you prefer.

Moises was our diving instructor/guide!!! Kind, patient and amazing. He made sure we were all safe and having fun! We had such a good time that we came back two days later to do it all over again.

This was our second experience with DNS. First time was 6 years ago and then returned this month. Dusty runs an excellent operation. Calle, Adly and Moises were our crew for three morning dives and Moises led us on a night dive. They are a great crew. Picked us up at our condo at Grandview promptly each day. We go on an annual dive trip to the Caribbean and DNS is one of my favorite companies to deal with

Great crew with Calle and Mohammed. Very well equipped boat and great dock location very close to the best dive sites. Small number of diver and the crew were very professional but also friendly.

Through a local referral, we found DNS. We did a refresher and 2 dives. Our snorkelling friends accompanied us. Pick ups were on time. Calle and Dusty were both great, ensuring that the boat and our equipment were ready and good to go. During the dives, they pointed out things of interest and ensured all was well. Our snorkelling friends enjoyed going out as much as we did. Thanks for a great time!

Just finished our last dive with DNS today. I can say that our local dive shops recommendation was spot on. I communicated with Dusty and we were put on the books for three days of two tank diving. This was our first real diving since
We got certified. We were a little nervous but Noah and Kalee were absolutely the best. We had no problems, we saw every sort of fish, a turtle, eagle rays, eels, and beautiful coral of all colors. The pick up in the morning, the provided water and cookies, it was amazing. Noah went above and beyond and let us try out his go pro! We will be getting one for Christmas ❤️ We will definitely be back to see them when we are back. It was truly one of the best experiences ever.

My husband and I were fortunate enough to do our open water certification check out dives in Grand Cayman, and our local friend (who was a dive master on the island for many years) recommended DNS Diving to us and it could not have been a better experience.

With just a few emails a couple weeks before we got to Cayman, DNS's owner Dusty set us up for our two check out dives on the Weds and Thurs after we arrived, and also scheduled us for another "fun" dive on Mon before we departed.

We had a car while on the island so we went to the office beforehand (they're located in the center of Seven Mile Beach), filled out all our certification paperwork, handed over our open water referral paperwork from our local dive shop, and met our dive master Koldo.

Koldo was awesome! Our first two dives were afternoon shore dives off Macabuca, and after he'd covered all the things we'd do in the water to show we were ready to be certified, we went right in, did our check out things, and saw sting rays, parrot fish, barracuda and so much more wildlife than I can even remember just over the reef along the way. On our second dive a sea turtle even swam right past us and Koldo got a great video of it cruising by without a care in the world.

Our second day of diving was even better when we did two morning dives on the DNS boat at a couple of sites off of Seven Mile Beach. In addition to Koldo, we also had two more DNS dive masters, Kalle and Lucy (also great folks!), and a couple of experienced divers with us then. Once we'd covered what we needed to for our certification it was fun dive time, and again, the Three Caves and Banana Boat dive sites we visited did not disappoint: so many fish, so much bright coral, such clear water - what a sight to behold.

I'm happy to say we passed our open water certifications with flying colors. Koldo gave us full marks and showed us some cool tips and tricks he'd picked up being a commercial diver for a number of years in Europe.

Our final 2 tank dive the next Monday was great as well. This time, we went with Kalle and Koldo and our buddy who lives in Grand Cayman to the north side of the island and dove Ronnie's Nemesis and the Queen's Throne. On these dives we saw a couple of reef sharks swim past, a good amount of lion fish hiding in crevices in the reef, spiny lobster, and more.

In between dives on the boats there were towels, bottles of water, cookies(!), and good stories about the sites we were diving. It was a true top notch experience and I look forward to when we can go back and explore more dive sites on Grand Cayman with DNS. If it's even half as good as our first trip, it'll be fantastic.

My wife and I dove with DNS on friday march 3rd, and the level of service does not get any better!! 11 out of 10!
Dusty and his team truly care about their customers and the experience they can provide for them.
Down to earth amazing people who are also very fun to be with - Not only do they provide great diving experiences they also know how to make you laugh :) and feel safe.

What an amazing week with DNS Diving team! 2 tank dives in the morning to multiple sites around the island! Saw eagle rays, turtles, eels, and lots of beautiful coral and fish types (puffer, angel, parrot fish etc.) Instructor was excellent in certifying my daughter. Private charter to stingray city, starfish point and mudslides at Kaïbo was so much fun!!! 100% recommend DNS Diving activities!

We came for a quick trip before Christmas to get some diving in. We were able to do all of our dives with the same group - tbh I was worried bc if it was great then GREAT but if not we would be stuck all week. Well it was GREAT! We had the same DMs/guides all week and LOVED THEM. From the very first minute, Lucy, Georgia and Danny put us at ease and took such great care of us. We were even able to talk about things we would like to see in choosing the dive site each day. Hopefully, we will be back! We would definitely recommend this dive company!
