It is not the cheapest shop, they charged extra fees which did not appear on price list and he got pretty aggressive when we tried to explain him that this is unfair.
At the beginning he also told us he can give us a better price for the dives as we were a group of 4 - at the end he did not. All he did is giving us a discount because of a screwed dive.
On one day we went out to see hammer head on the first dive and tresher sharks and may some mantas on the second. The day before we came by 2 times because we wanted to make sure that both dives are possible at once (which means if there is a possibility to see anything). Of
course we have been diving for 15 years was the answer and that we can change the time if we knew it better... At the end we said ok let's give it a try. The day after we showed up at 4 am as we were told, on time because of the well explored 15-years-diving-experience. After 15 minutes one other diver showed us and told us that he was told to show up at 4:15 am. After 45 more minutes we got on board kept asking the new dive guide (because ours did not show up) if we should just cancel the dive and do it tomorrow. Everything ok - well in time was the answer. At the end we saw nothing -
well you never know but if you get told
about the perfect timetable and at the end one hour later should also be good, ja what should I say...
As we complained about the price Dan got aggressive, raised his voice and even threatened us to call the immigration. They put you in prison for 6 months, was his threat. All we wanted is a better price because of all the mistakes they made. We got 500 Pesos (125 Pesos each). There was just no way to discuss anything, we tried to talk as grown ups but ended up walking away disappointed - and he got what he wanted - our money for a service you should usually don't spend it.
Also the gear is absolutely not good. The Equipment is loosing air basically everywhere. The Finimeter is going up and down every time you breath. But all the guides say - that's just a little bit, everything is fine.
I usually hate living bad reviews, but I got so upset after all that, I had to do this.
So look around and avoid this place. You will find better and cheaper once.
