I dove 4 times with Jeff (& Astrid, Marcello, Csaba, and Damian) while down fin St. Maarten or a week.
I was coming off a bad dive experience in the Fall and a little shaky despite having 200+ dives. Since I was headed to T&C in June, I was anxious to have a couple of good dives in my system. Speaking with Luciana before signing up gave me a really good feeling. She was very warm and helpful. During the prep for the first dive, Jeff noticed that my BCD was not functioning properly and advised me not to use the power inflator. (It was my own equipment and they fixed it the next day without any problems.) He and the rest of the crew were incredible helpful and efficient and provided short but very helpful briefings.
As a footnote, I am slightly disabled so need some help with ladder and equipment hauling - it was no problem. I was not made to feel weak or crippled; I was just helped when I needed it. The fish and plant life weren't as rich as Belize (my normal spot) but there was plenty to see. Really enjoyed all 4 dives and recovered my confidence with their help. Will be back again soon.
