At this moment, I am sitting on the porch of our Great Exuma rental home (which is outstanding, it's called "Paul's Place"). We arrived from Missouri a few days back and our first destination was this shop. I had written the shop a few weeks before arriving, and received an almost instant response from Tamara, the lovely lady who runs the place.
I told her oijn my email that we had been to the Bahamas 2 times now and having some trouble getting me into the water. The dive shop in Green Turtle Cay (Brendal's), advertises itself as if it runs a tight, tourist oriented business, but it did not. Brendal's was a rather disorganized, "Brendal"" focused shop, would plan dives and then upon our arrival, inexplicably cancel. Also, they are not a PADI shop.
Here, Tamara and Jonathan (Dive Exuma owners) were beyond kind. Tamara had actually noted my frustration and set out to make sure I got some dives in, even though it was rainy and overcast! They also did something outstanding, that I have never seen before. Took just one diver out on the boat! Just me! I had two expert divers, a couple of blue holes, and some incredible sights in the water, all to myself! I could do whatever I wanted (as a safe diver)! It was incredible. Most shops want several divers to make the trip worth their time, these guys really listened. They are real pros, Tamra (Tamara? She is a mysterious lady!) is just a wonderful (and laughs at my jokes, a big plus) and Jonathan and his crew know every nook and cranny of the islands.
I felt quite safe with this outfit. They are easy to contact, quite responsive and hooked us up with several local activities with just a phone call.
If you visit the area and dive, use this outfit! Instead of the routine, tightly controlled, regimented, rushed dives you get at the Sandals Resort here on the island, you get a real look, in an unhurried pace, at the gems of the Great Exuma Island. And you can take this outfit at its word. Fantastic!!!
