We had an awesome time diving with Chloe & Oliver. My husband earned his PADI certification & I upgraded from my Open Water. The dives were beautiful. The lunch provided was an amazing 4 course meal. We came away with better knowledge & comfort underwater. Overall, they are very

it is a family run business & they live on the boat. The food was good. Unorganized and minimal attraction. The 1st stop was good & then the 2nd stop was meh. Our group felt they should have gone over safety & boat rules. The divers in our group didn’t dive as they didn’t feel

I really feel disappointed by reading your message... Of course that we are a PADI dive center, you can even check it on PADI website if you want. Our material is certified and regularly checked, as expected by the PADI international standards and also by the French rules and regulation. My husband Olivier and myself Chloé, both of us are professional scuba diver instructors. We are Master Scuba Diving Teachers (MSDT) certified by PADI, "Brevets d'Etat" certified by the French state, and "Federal Monitors" certified by the French scuba diving school (FFESSM). Our professional diplomas and our insurance certificate are even visible inside the boat, nearby where you put your bags. There is no sticker on the scuba diving material as we put it in the water, so as to protect the sea life, like every professional scuba diving school in Martinique... You have seen a lot of divers this day and they were all very happy, feeling safe with us and enjoying the beauty of the underwater world! Next time, feel free to ask if you have any question. I would definitely have preferred that you start by asking, instead of telling us that everything was fine and then writing incorrect things online! We don't rush during our days on our catamaran: that's holidays! We spend the morning on one scuba diving and snorkeling place, and the lunch and afternoon in another bay. We wish that everybody has time to relax and enjoy. If you had expected to go to 10 different places within one day, I guess that you did not read the description of our day before coming, I'm sorry for you.

To clarify my aunt’s (JoVermont) review and subsequent response from Chloe. My aunt and I explored many snorkeling places in Martinique, and the places ATAO Plongee took us were not the best we experienced, despite statements from Chloe to the contrary. We do not need to “ask

Your aunt named JoVermont on TripAdvisor left us a review, our first bad review on TripAdvisor. My husband and I were very sad. I also felt very sorry for her and for you, and I tried to explain with details what we propose and what we don't propose on our diving catamaran. When you were on board, everything went perfectly from our point of view, we did not face any problem during the day, and apart from your aunt and you, all our other customers were very happy. Feel free to contact me if you want to discuss more about that. You already have all my contact information and I always try to answer as quickly as I can.

We spent a day with ATOA Plongee in Martinique. This is a family run business, the family of 4 actually live on the boat. This review is based on what we thought we booked, and what actually happened. We assumed we would actually sail and we assumed we would go snorkeling/diving

Hello, I feel very sad by reading your review, I'm sorry for you that you did not appreciate your day with us. Please let me give a few feedback about your assumptions: In the morning we were at Pointe Burgos. This is one of the most BEAUTIFUL PLACE TO DO SCUBA DIVING (and snorkeling) in Martinique. There are also many scuba diving people who go there everyday. Maybe it is different from Australia or Southern France : each scuba diving place in the world has its own style. But it is really not a "bad" place to practice scuba diving. You cannot even judge about it because you told us that you did not want to do scuba diving, but you can ask any scuba diving club from Martinique, they will all agree with us. On the top of that, this place is really not very easy to access without having a boat. In the afternoon we let the group choose between going to l'Anse Noire (wilder, and more time sailing, approximately 45 minutes compared to the 20 minutes that it took us to reach the Bourg des Anses d'Arlet). To give everybody a clear picture, we also indicates that in l'Anse Noire there are less turtles and less fishes than in the Bourg des Anses d'Arlet. The group (including you and your niece) agreed on going to the Bourg des Anses d'Arlet. This place is not only accessible from a boat, but it is soooo beautiful, so full of fishes and of turtles, much more than other places further. In the afternoon it is not crowded in my opinion. It may happen that some other snorkelers there don't have a correct behavior, like in any place in the world. We manage our customers, and we sometimes tell things to other people, for instance when we see that they harass a turtle, but we cannot educate all the world !
