Nothing but RAVES for the wonderful diving we experienced with Seagrape Plantation Diveshop! While others divers were shlepping their gear, we were skipping merrily along the waves on our way to our morning dive. Seagrape has it down to an art. Checking in with Rachael at the office was a breeze. After checking our credentials and filling out our paperwork on the first dive, a friendly smile and wave was all it took from then on. After you are outfitted with your gear, Captain Ricky and First and Best Mate Hyson take over. Not only do they help in the boat, but for the rest of our dives (15 in total) they greeted us as we arrived, retrieved, carried to the boat, and set up all our gear - BC, weights, fins, mask, regulater, everything! Spa service on a dive boat! They even remembered where we prefered to sit and had us ready to go. All the time smiling, chatting and obviously enjoying their work. Tony is the DIVEMASTER! He took the time to personally discuss our preferences, experience, and expectations before determining which divesite to visit. Every dive was geared to the divers on board, not just a scheduled destination. You want turtles - you got turtles, a wreck? to the wreck we went. Channels? Tunnels? you named it, you got it. even spearing lion fish was included. With each dive he constantly monitored his divers, taking special care of the less experienced including practicing a few skills during the dive. Arriving back on the surface, same spa service. Gear grabbed, assisted out of the water, greeted with towels and smiles. During the dive, Tony would point out many small creatures and features, then explain the relationship between them all on board. Hyson and Ricky are fantastic sources of information regarding the reef as well and on occasion one of them would dive with us. Both are well quailifed if not dive masters themselves. And the boat. Perfect, clean, covered sitting area and never more than 10 on board. Back on shore, Rachael greeted us with fresh fruit, drinks and snacks.
These guys know what they are doing! We will be back!
