I have always wanted to scuba dive my whole life. Our instructor Jonathan was so very patient with me and very friendly. Cannot say enough good things about all of the staff there. Great pictures taken by our photogrpher Gustavo as well. Well organized team and great equipment. The dives were breathtaking!

Staff did a great job showing us sea turtles, rays and beautiful fish. We also happened upon a moray eating a fish. My husband and I scuba, and this was just a snorkeling trip since we had a non-diver with us. The reef was very small and not that impressive, but we really enjoyed it. Staff hard working and had...
