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

I went on the 21st and it was a great experience. From the boat ride to the dolphins to the people, and to the dolphins themselves-awesome! Do yourself a favor and do one of their experiences. We did the swim with the dolphins which was perfect for us. The personalities of the dolphins are just the sweetest and so funny!... More

I had a wondedul experience with UNEXSO!! The boat ride (to where the dolphins are kept) was very relaxing and plesent. We participated in the dolphin encounter. It was a wondedul, once in a lifetime oppurtunity. The staff was great, funny, and you could tell that they loved what they were doing. The pictures that they take also come out... More

Loved this adventure! I typically avoid "trained" diving adventures but ... "it's dolphins in the open water"! Oh my, this does not disappoint! The staff were absolutely wonderful and there are no adjectives that can do justice to Patrick the trainer and the entire operation! Sure, it is somewhat costly but the memories are priceless and well worth it! Thank... More

Absolutely amazing adventure!!! Very professional and made a "bucket list" adventure better than expected. Bring your own gear as the only negative was, they charge $12.00 for wetsuit rental.

I was very nervous but Steve took my husband and I out and helped me through my fear. The diving was awesome and so was he! Ask For Steve because he is one of the best!
