Reef Smart Dive Guides
I use Reef Smart's maps and guides constantly in my writing to accurately portray dive sites around the world. Naturally, I use them when I dive as well!
They also offer 20% off their weatherproof map cards to my readers! - Use the code AJBAILEY on their site.
When I say this is the good stuff, I mean it's the really good stuff! Fabulous rum, locally made in the Cayman Islands using an incredible ageing process I borrowed in Bloody Bay Rum Club. Now available in most US states.
Conch Republic Divers
My favourite dive shop in the Upper Keys! Ashley and Dave run superb dive boats and have a fantastic little store where you'll find AJ Bailey Gear and copies of my books!
Looking for dive gear on Grand Cayman? Or even a copy of an AJ Bailey novel?
Visit my friends at Divers Supply as they have both! Conveniently located in West Shore Centre along Seven Mile Beach.
Lisa Collins is an amazing photographer above and below water, as well as a lovely lady.
Hire her for your next family photo shoot, or for lessons and instruction in anything related to photography and post editing.
She also happens to wear and sell Capture Cayman branded AJ Bailey Gear!
Fish Cayman Islands
My friend Rick runs a superb website dedicated to fishing the local waters of the Cayman Islands. Click the link to discover charter recommendations, articles, and tons of great info.
Chris and Kate run a fantastic 6-pack max operation from guess where..? That's right, Reg and AJ's dock in West Bay!
I chose Indigo's location as a perfect fit and the carpark, shack and pier really exist as described in the books. These days you'll also find a Mermaid Divers sign Kate added to a sign on the shack!
Whether you're looking for boat dives, shore dives from Lighthouse Point, or technical diving on Grand Cayman, Jo's Divetech op is the place to go.
You might also see some of her crew sporting Divetech branded AJ Bailey Gear!
Looking for the best private charter in the Lower Keys? You'll have a great time with my buddy, Captain John, aboard his 38' Rampage. Whether you're fishing, diving, or looking for a sunset cruise, give him a call.
