When I was in this store I saw a beautiful beach bag for 75$ in a light green/cream colour. I asked one of the three employees, who were chit chatting at the cash, if they had any other colours. She told me to look in the store as they are all over the place. I did take a quick second... More

I did the dolphin dive with UNEXSO but decided not to dive with them any more as the contact with the dive shop using their website and telephone communications were not clear or friendly enough. They do not offer clear packages for multiple dives (at least on their website and by phone) and their prices are higher than other operators,... More

Took four dives while in the Grand Bahamas. The dive staff is professional and knowledgeable. We had good dives and the briefings were thorough. They take safety seriously. The front staff is not as friendly and buttoned up. Had to complete my paperwork twice because they lost it.

I have always had a love for dolphins & whales since I was small - so when I found out about the Dolphin excursion I knew we had to do it! My hubby and I got to see a live dolphin show, pet, swim and hug a dolphin. The experience was amazing and like no other! It made our trip... More

We went for the open ocean offer and it was so much worth it. "our" dolphin, cacique, was so cool and we had a lot of fun swimming with him. Very helpful and friendly staff who took great pictures and videos of us.

This was a wonderful excursion, I am deathly afraid of water, but the staff was more than accommodating to ensure that I had an excellent time either way. We would highly recommend using Unexco for your excursions.

I was nervous about trying it but felt that their facility and staff for Discover Scuba was perfect. Large 17ft pool to try scuba first with great support from Jarvis the instructor. Then out to the 40ft dive. They made me very comfortable throughout the process. I would not hesitate to use them anytime.

Of course it's a bit expensive (180USD + taxes for the swim), but it worth it. They take you on a boat to bring you to the "lagoon" (totally artificial), so they don't let anybody accompagnying you or they would have to pay 86USD, i.e. the price for kissing a dolphin, even if they don't want to do anything and...
