Cayman was known as "The Islands that time forgot". However, Bob Soto woke it up when he started the world's first scuba diving company in 1957. He brought it to great success with his talent for marketing. Bob produced Cayman's first promotional film, to advertise the island's sun, sea, sand and amazing underwater beauty. With his permission, the Department of Tourism used the movie as their main advertising tool for many years. It was not long before the Cayman Islands became the top scuba diving destination in the world and Bob Soto's Diving became internationally renowned alongside it. Bob provided the only sea search-and-rescue operation from the time he returned to Cayman. Many times day and night Bob was called out to assist in searching for people and boats. He was always available to help anyone. His experience with the US Navy carried over well into his operations here. Bob also championed conservation issues, lobbying the government to designate the first protected marine park for his beloved sea creatures and the coral reefs. Bob stopped divers and snorkelers from taking coral long before there was an actual conservation movement or any law established to protect the marine environment, thus preserving his island's "treasures". His uncanny problem-solving ability enabled him to invent and build his own scuba equipment, attracting increasing numbers of tourists to experience Cayman's magnificent underwater world with Bob Soto's Diving. He was always working on the "next" adventure, leading to his incredible tales of treasure hunting and pioneering live-aboard diving. As the business grew, Bob eventually built a dive lodge in East End. Bob was a Christian man. He was kind, gentle, and loving, always with a smile, but not to be crossed! He had a passion to honor others, as evidenced by his work on "Tradition," the memorial to seamen, which has become a favorite statue in Heroes Square in George Town, where thousands have taken photos alongside the father and son steering a ship into the "abyss". In November 2014, he had the Home Guard veterans honored with all their names etched on the cenotaph in front of the Elmslie Memorial Church. When you visit Cayman, do not miss it! Come along on Bob Soto's "extraordinary adventures" of scuba diving; treasure hunting; sailing; rafting; and tasting life in Cayman when there were no planes, just ships, donkeys and catboats for transportation. Journey with Bob from the "Islands that time forgot" to modern-day Cayman. This is Bob's story. He tells it straight from the heart.

Suzy Soto

Suzy Soto moved to the Cayman Islands in 1963 with her then-husband, Eric Bergstrom, and their three young daughters; later two sons were added to the family. That first year, they built the Tortuga Club, a resort offering diving and fishing in undeveloped Colliers, East End, operating it for 18 years. Suzy has been intrinsically connected to tourism in Cayman ever since those early days.She enjoys sailing and has an adventurous spirit well matched by Bob Soto, who she married in 1981. She started the perennially popular Cracked Conch restaurant in West Bay the year they wed. Requests from Tor
