Did three dives with Unexso and found the staff to be helpful and professional. First dive was a 2 tank dive, dive masters did a great job of briefing us as well as pointing things out during the dive. Would highly recommend the Shark Dive, never been this close to sharks. Don't forget they also have afternoon 1 tank dives... More

The dive was great, all dive staff were accommodating. It's a unique experience, diving so close to such beautiful creatures and interacting with them. Too bad the experience was afterwards spoiled by Unexso retail, as I purchased a video of my dive, which was and absolute rip-off: I paid $40 for a 26 minute video of my dive. doesn't sound... More

My wife and I did the shark dive today—AWESOME!! The entire crew was excellent. Everyone was very professional and EXTREMELY helpful—we felt very safe The sharks were swimming all around us—even touching us sometimes. We highly recommend shark diving with UNEXSO.

We bought a dolphin encounter excursion. It made for a lifetime memory. The staff was so entertaining during the excursion and the dolphins, amazing. When we got back to the store, there was so much to shop for. What was really surprising was the amount of American made clothing available for purchase. I stocked up. A great experience overall!

This is an awesome experience. It is totally worth it. I was on a cruise and booked this as an excursion. Everyone from the bus driver to the dolphin trainer and photographers was professional, yet playful. It is a good little ride from the cruise port to the location, but the bus driver provides plenty of island history and statistics.... More

We went on a terrible rainy day because we were super board. Lol. It was still incredible. If all the activities this is the one even if it's a crappy day. Do bring a towel and wear a bathing suit because you are definitely going to get wet and it's worth it. When we were there 2 babies had been... More

I came to Unexso to take a 3 day Shark course with world famous Cristina Zenato. It's the 1st time I didn't even check Tripadvisor before I booked. The course was incredible and beyond my wildest high maintenance expectations..Cristina has dedicated her life to exploration, education, and conservation. She loves to share her expertise of Oceans, Sharks, Caves, and Scuba... More

Our family of five chose the "swim with the dolphins". Our trainer was great! He was informative and entertaining. We each had the opportunity to swim with our own dolphin and were given instruction on how to interact with them. What a fabulous experience!!!!! I cannot swim so I was hesitant. I used a life jacket. Even though I could... More
