We chose a snorkel trip to decide whether we'd like to begin diving again. We snorkeled two sites and saw a ton on critters, including a shark and sea turtle! I... More

I scheduled my trip with them a couple of months in advance. I was impressed that they followed up and placed verification calls to make sure about my skills and exactly where I was... More
