Amazing scuba spots
The scuba experience was amazing. Just a little trouble confirming the pick-up information, especially when Tripadvisor didn't show the contact info. I had to find the number through their website and tried all methods to reach out.

Great time with the dive operator that Bill Beatds set up for me, Rocket Frog Diving. Excellent service on time, informative, excellent guides that worked hard to find critters for us
I have been D/M for 35 years and I appreciate a well run operation for my fun diving.

Had a great time diving! Everything went smoothly from booking to being picked up to getting on the boat and going diving. The marine life was excellent and we saw seahorses, sharks, stingrays, massive schools of fish and more. Highly recommended!

Just excellent
Aug 2019
My review is colored with the fact that the visibility was excellent that day, but the dive, the divemaster, the equipment was all top-notch. I had an awesome time. And as far as service goes, the booked me last minute after another tour canceled on me at 5 PM the day before so that's also a major plus for them.
