We dove two mornings with the Scuba Shack. Phil and JP were awesome dive masters. Everything went smoothly and effortlessly. We especially liked the swim throughs and Bloody Bay Wall.

This is the 3rd trip to Cayman Brac and we have made the choice to dive with them each time. Our first trip was Sept 2015, second was April 2016 and the last trip was last month in October 2016. We have been fortunate to go for 2 weeks at a time and we have been totally spoiled by Leisel,... More

This was our third visit to Cayman Brac this year and our third time diving with Brac Scuba. Love the island and the Scuba Shack team. My husband and 13 yo dive, but I only snorkel. This trip I decided to take the beginner scuba class. Great experience! JP was very patient with myself and the other student. Lots of... More

Don't let this tiny little dive shop fool you. They may be small but they are big when it comes to experience! From the moment we checked in the day before our dive, we felt like we were a part of their little dive family. When we got out on the boat, there were only 4 divers, so it was... More

I stayed at Carib Sands condo and the Brac Scuba Shack boat is docked right at the end of their pier. I booked a seat as a snorkeler. After boarding some of us at the dock, we motored over a short distance to the dock by their dive shop to pick up more guests. The staff, Phil and Roxanne, oriented... More

I have been to my fair share of dive shops but my encounter with Brac Scuba Shack was hands down the worst experience I've ever had. The young lady manning the store, which was only open 2 hours a day while I was there, was rude beyond description. She acted as if she was doing us a favor to even... More

Martin v, Owner at Brac Scuba Shack, responded to this review

Good Afternoon Lance We sincerely apologize for the treatment you received from Brac Scuba Shack. This is most definitely not the way we conduct business. Due to the fact that during our quite season our staff go on vacation, we were working with skeleton staff and that is why the shop had limited hours daily. Once again, please accept our... More

Great shop to dive with. They keep their groups small and all dive masters have a great knowledge of the dive sites. All the staff are great. They provide excellent dive briefings complete with drawings and highlights of each site. Would definitely dive with them again - can't wait to return. They took us to Little Cayman one day to...

Very professional, helpful, and kind staff: Liesel and Martin - owners, Phil and Roxane - Captain and Divemasters. The dive boat (Newton 42) was outstanding. All in all a first class operation. Liesel, Phil, and Roxane took us to incredible dive sites where we were the only ones around. Cayman Brac and Little Cayman. Wall dives, night dives, and reef... More

Good attention to safety. Great local knowledge of the reef system. We dove primarily with captain Phil and 1st mate Roxanne who are very capable and knowledgeable of the dive sites.
