My husband and I went on 2 - 2 tank dives on 8/30 and 8/31. We were privileged enough to go on a different both each day and dive with a different crew. Both days were absolutely amazing. Both crews worked well with all dive levels and went above and beyond to make everyone happy and have a great time.... More

We took a cab from right where the ship left us off ($7 a person.) Cab ride to the excursion left us off at the casino, on the opposite side of the market. From the casino, there is a decent free beach. The UNEXSO facility was nice and the pool was deep, huge, had a few great picture-viewholes on the... More

This was the greatest experience!! The dolphins were amazing and the trainers really treat them like their babies. We booked this as an excursion on our cruise to the Bahamas. The bus ride was short and the boat ride was nice. There were only 9 people so our group was small compared to the encounter group. Loved being able to... More

We went on the Dolphin Encounter. After a short boat ride, we were able to get up close to two Dolphins during our encounter - a mum and her 9 month old. Both were gorgeous and friendly. If you don't take your camera (which really needs to be waterproof due to the dolphins splashing you every chance they get), the... More

I've always had a thing for dolphins and swimming with them has always been on my bucket list. The swim encounter with Unexo was beyond my wildest dreams. I loved how we had the change to swim one on one, alone with the dolphins. Then we also had the opportunity to tell them to do tricks, they showed off some... More

This was absolutely a fantastic experience for me, my son, and my daughter who took her first Dive with Diego!!! Even when things did not work properly, like the Dolphins deciding that they did not want to go to the open water on Wednesday, they crew and staff made everything fun, and made the most of our adventure. We did... More

I was a first time ocean diver on this trip, newly certified in fresh water back home. The staff was extremely professional yet casual enough not to make a new diver feel uncomfortable. They helped with all equipment which was literally a load off my back as I have severe arthritis in my back. They helped me carry my tank... More

If you are a new scuba diver and comfortable with the water Discover Scuba is great for you! However, if you are not comfortable in the pool then you may not be comfortable in the ocean. The Discover Scuba is a 40 foot dive that can be a little intimidating. My thought here is that beginners should at least go... More

We had a wonderful experience with Unexso. As newly certified scuba divers, we went on a trip to Freeport. We did 2 shallow water reef dives and the dolphin encounter with Unexso. The entire staff was amazing and very helpful. Even before we left on the trip, I contacted Unexso with various questions via email, and received prompt and informative... More
