We were treated very friendly every time we had any interactions with VIP diving. We asked for smaller tanks and got them. Everything was very convenient and professionally dealt with. Great organization!

I took my son (9 years old) to VIP diving for a PADI bubblemaker dive, and he had a fantastic time. We spent about 30 minutes underwater and she did a great job showing him the fun of scuba diving. We'll be back next year!

Hello Bob, We could make this work but I would recommend for the 8 snorkelers to book a snorkeling tour and the divers a dive tour. A combination tour will always be sub par for one or the other group. We do not have... More
