This is a great centre to dive with. I did my advanced open water certification here with Ray. He was impeccable. They were very flexible with the dives I wanted to do and ensured that I was comfortable. Took me to a variety of great locations too. Everett always made sure that I was at ease and even provided food... More

I used this dive centre to do my advanced PADI diving course whilst in Jamaica I had emailed a few before hand but Everett's email back made me feel instantly at ease so it was an easy choice. Troy, my dive instructor and Fudge the boat man were brilliant. They had loads off information to give me whilst sailing out... More

My husband and I started diving with them back in 1988 on our honeymoon. We continued for 11 years straight until my husband passed away. They are the most wonderful people in the world. Everett will do anything to make your diving AND Jamaican experience memorable and pleasurable. Those are some of my fondest memories. He and his staff are... More

The day I spent with Resort Divers at Runaway Bay was the highlight of my 7-day trip to Jamaica. The dive sites at Runaway Bay were superior to the ones in Negril. But the hospitality and professionalism on offer were equally impressive. The equipment for rent and the boat were of high quality. Our instructor was very observant and reliable.... More

I dive with my frind Vicki who is a blind diver, usually we face problematic dive companies who are reluctant to take any risk, despite the fact that Vicki qualified with OW with her sight problem, and we usually have to invoke PADI's help to resolve this. Not this time! Everett contacted me by return of email and eagerly accepted... More

having completed a PADI advance open water certification previously I wanted to do at least one dive. Resort divers were mentioned on the PADI website. Troy, my instructor, was very helpful in assisting me to enjoy the experience. On one dive we swam in a large shoal of Chubb as well as seeing many other fish including a Barracuda.

I had originally been booked with another company, but when they never showed up at (after previously cancelling on me without any explanation), the lady at the resort's tour desk phoned this company, and I was sooo happy she...

My better half used this company to certify and I did a 2 tank dive with them. I was so impressed with the training "Dr. Patience" provided..much better than the training I received when I certified! We used the internet and contacted them via email and usually by 6:30-7 am the following morning we received our responses. I did a... More

We went for 4 dives over our vacation with this company - all of which were amazing, I have nothing bad to say. Our dive-master was extremely professional, knowledgeable and pleasant. He and the captain of the boat were amazing and worked very hard to ensure that we had a good time. I was expecting to be packing our tanks... More
