I was so impressed with Sail Caribean Divers! I have done diving a couple times in both Bahamas and Belize as well as in Cuba and they have been the best I've experienced.
I was sailing in the British Virgin Islands for a week mid February and emailed several companies in the area with my itinerary and questions including asking from where and when they dove the Rhone and they got back to me with the most information and dates/times when my schedule between islands would match with where they were stationed and when they dove the Rhone.
1. Their equipment is good, little things like BCDs had hooks/snaps etc that made keeping my hoses/regulator attached and close to my body (I usually have to put my gauge through my velcro waist belt to hold it in)
2. Staff was professional, friendly, knowledgeable, liked the marble cake snack between dives, I'm always hungry after a dive.
3. Great value $110 for 2 tank dive ALL equipment included.
4. Clear instruction on dive route and procedures, showed us map of Rhone and where we'd go, went over getting in and out of boat, use of tag line, toilet procedures etc. (sounds like what everyone does, but unfortunately not everyone does or to the same degree)
5. Safety was top notch, they kept track of us leaving and getting back onto boat (not all places do this, and should), went over a variety of signals including ones for different fish/creatures we might see, checked in with each diver frequently to see if we were okay and what our PSI levels were, did proper safety stop with group and it was first boat I have been on that actually DID have a spare tank hanging at the 15ft depth in case needed.
I met them at the Cooper Island dock and dove the RMS Rhone near Salt Island which was a wonder to see and Cistern Rock (by Cooper Island). There were lots of fish at the Rhone and we swam through a short tunnel of the ship, very cool. The 18ft propeller of the boat was quite a sight to see. The dive at Cistern was neat with several sand grooves with nooks to explore and beautiful fields of coral and sea fans all around. Saw several eels there.
overall, fantastic experience, felt safe, had fun, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to a beginner or experienced diver.
