Dive Abaco has been very accommodating for me. They were even able to do an offshore rendezvous to pick me up and get certified while so my friends could stay put. Not only did I feel like I was dealing with one if the most experienced dive operations in the world it was great to get local insight from Keith... More

Keith the owner and dive master did such a great job with everything! He was gracious enough to meet us out on the sea of Abaco to ensure the rest of our crew was able to have a good day of sailing. He then took us to two wonderful dive spots and was able to give us great information at... More

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our trip with Dive Abaco. I dove and my wife snorkeled. Having been on many dive/snorkel combination trips, I was concerned that snorkeling area wouldn't be shallow enough for my wife to enjoy, but we both had a great experience. Although both dives were relatively shallow, it was worth the trade-off because I could... More

I learned how to dive at Dive Abaco! over 30 years ago and just enjoyed another spectacular dive with a passionate, knowledgeable and safe Dive Master. I have traveled the world, diving in places such as the Great Barrier Reef in Australia, and the famous waters off the coast of Cozumel, but I have never experienced the beauty and colours... More

My husband and I had a great time on the dive trip with Keith. I have been a diver for over 20 years and Keith told me several diving techniques that I had never heard of before. He kept the safety of everyone on board his top priority. While having both divers and snorkelers on this trip he made sure... More

As an inexperienced and nervous diver I booked a refresher course with Dive Abaco and 2 dives which were amazing! I was so impressed with Keith's patience, understanding and professionalism and would thoroughly recommend Dive Abaco ... They fuelled my enthusiasm to do more diving!

Typical one-man operation cattle boat. Owner/captain/divemaster had one mate on board to meet legal crew requirement. Mate did not speak good english, and had no seamanship skills whatsoever. Probably worked at McD's the day before. Captain/owner did reasonable job of piloting boat to reef, gave quick briefing, then left boat to lead guided tour of reef. Manditory safety equipment only...

It is unfortunate you didn't express your concerns in person the day of the trip allowing us to address them immediately, rather than 5 months later. The Bahamas is an English speaking country, but there is a rhythmic dialect that takes some guests more time to adapt. We find your comment regarding McDonald's employees both unkind & irrelevant, undeserving of... More

I started diving in 1975 but over the years had lost my card. I recently was re-certified by Keith at Dive Abaco. Keith was a great instructor both knowledgable and friendly. It was also great to be able to do the check out dive in such a beautiful location as Fowl Cay reef. The dive boat was well maintained and... More

I dived with Keith from Dive Abaco in late August 2013 with four of our children, while my wife (who has ear problems) snorkelled. The diving itself was pretty special, with an abundance of marine life and plenty of beautiful coral. Most impressive of all were the swim throughs, many of them lit from above with rays of golden sunlight... More
