I did 13 dives with Scandi in May 2013, I didn't do all the dives I wanted so I returned this May to try a few more. From the moment I walked into the hotel it was as if I had never been away, genuine friendliness and all matters relating to diver were treated in a professional manner. I dived... More

This is my second time at Scandi Divers!!!! The Staff, room, food and diving was wonderful. My stay was for 2 weeks and I hated going back home! I felt like family and any request I made was promptly achieved! Walter, my dive guide, could find even the smallest critter! Katherine and her staff makes sure everything runs smoothly! You... More

Scandi Divers is a quaint resort with an up to date dive center on a quiet bay just a thirty minute boat ride from over 40 dive sites. The rooms are simple, but clean and airy. The open air restaurant is relaxing with friendly service and good food + Starbuck's Coffee.
