I have made hundred of dives at many different resorts, but i was disappointed with this dive company. During the first 2 tank dive, the dive master did not keep track of all of the divers nor their air consumption. On our second dive, she lost track of the majority of the dive party, which resulted in going to the... More

My husband and I did the discovery dive with two other people on March 30, 2015. Brian was our instructor and did an outstanding job at teaching us the ropes and keeping us safe during the dive. He took his time so we never felt rushed. My husband is a certified scuba diver and did a two tank dive a... More

"Splash!" The anticipated and forewarned salty wave washed over my entire body. Soprano squeals of fellow passengers flew through the bright early warm air of the morning. Uncontrollable giggles escaped from my mouth. What a refreshing way to wake up and get a morning shower! I had an absolute blast sitting in what I call the "rock star seat" of... More

Simply put- these guys rival the best operations in the world. They are diving heroes that do everything they can to make the dive experience enjoyable for their customers. Special thanks go out to Zyta in the head office and Ruth, possibly the best Divemaster I have ever followed. If you want a great dive vacation, you cannot go wrong... More

Good equipment and boats. Most staff outstanding but safety mindedness a little sketchy. Ratio of customers to divemasters not as favorable as I would prefer.

Booked through cruise line excursions - so no prior knowledge of Ocean Encounters. Staff was on-time, pleasant and very helpful for morning 2 tank shore dive. Dive Master was knowledgeable and explained the area we would be diving in. Dive Master very helpful when another diver had issues; kept the group together and informed of what was going on. Professional... More

My girlfriend and I were staying at Sunscape Resort (excellent by the way) and went to the introduction of Ocean Encounter Diving. We were immediately impressed with the friendliness and professional attitude of the staff ( Angeles, Tara, Benjamin, and Angeliek). I liked them so much, they became a part of my daily routine.
