In operation over 15 years, “We cater to small groups of divers on our boats so you won’t be diving in a crowd,” explains Fisheye’s Rebecca Clarke. “Seasoned veterans and new divers are given the care that they need so that everyone has the best time possible.We even set up your gear and switch tanks between dives so that you can relax and enjoy your vacation.” Fisheye offers several services, from instruction to rentals. “We offer instruction and rentals of Nikonos,Sea & Sea, and underwater video equipment.
Our award-winning set of three Nikonos instructional video tapes, produced by Martin sutton and Susan Abbott, are available here in the shop and by mail-order,” notes Clarke. “Every Nikonos underwater student we teach watches these tapes as part of our high-quality Photography course. Our guests are invited to take along one of our easy-to-use Sea & Sea underwater cameras for just the cost of a roll of film. We also sell Nikonos, Sea & Sea, and Ikelite underwater photo equipment.” Along with rentals, Fisheye of Cayman offers a variety of photo classes, starting with “Intro to nderwater Photography,” a class available any day of the year. The class begins with a two-hour lecture covering equipment and basic techniques; students then take a one-tank boat dive to shoot a roll of film. After processing, a critique session follows. The class includes all equipment and a roll of either slide or print film without processing. For more advanced students, the Underwater Photo Certification Class is available; this class includes a two-tank dive and certification as a PADI underwater photographer. For more serious underwater photographers, the “Underwater Photo Master Class” covers basic instruction in macro and wide angle photography. The class includes six boat dives, three rolls of film, and use of photo equipment; PADI certification as an Underwater Photographer is also included.
Travelers who would like instruction in particular areas can select the “Suit Yourself Class.” The class includes a one-tank boat dive and can be customized to a client’s needs, whether that’s learning about camera housing, specific photography techniques, or composition. At Fisheye of Cayman, photo courses that are reserved and paid for in advance by a travel agent are commissionable to the agent at a rate of 10%.
Full payment is required 30 days prior to arrival. No refunds are offered for cancellations received less than 30 days prior to arrival, and since no refunds are offered for diving lost due to inclement weather, “we strongly suggest that clients purchase trip insurance,” says Clarke.
