Clive was an excellent dive master and he only takes 6 max on his boat so you feel like it’s a private dive. We saw so much sea life including a sea turtle and marge eel. Excellent day!

Clive is super nice! The boat is smaller, so you get to know your fellow drivers better, also getting in and out is very easy. You sit on the back of the boat, and Clive brings/takes off your BCD. I like the setup he has...More
