He helped ease the nerves of those who were uncomfortable. Did all the equipment checks and made sure all was well. We dove in and with... More

My first 2 tank dive was with boat #4, the crew Director was Julio, who is a very fun guy along with Luis! My two dives were with only other two divers, one of them very inexperienced. That could've potentially ruin the dives but, Dive Master Charlie did an excellent job accommodating the different divers' skills and experience. There was... More

From check in to offloading it was superbly managed. Excellent equipment, attentive dive leader in Fernando, who fixed my gear underwater, and even loaned me his own camera battery when mine was dead. Food and drink on board was plentiful and good, and the entire crew entertained on the way back to harbor. The diving was cold for me at... More

It started with a training lesson in the pool at the resort. I was impressed by the professionalism and sincerity of Antonio, taking me through all the steps and ensuring I understood everything. This went well and even though I am a capable swimmer and snorkeler I appreciate the extra confidence this gave me. The next part was the tour... More

We went scuba diving in the morning, water access was the easiest we have ever experienced, good equipment. There was a great variety of fish including Morey eels, turtles, a beautiful sea... More
