Ocean Encounters made our trip experience 100x better. Their crew was top notch and were a wealth of knowledge. The private boat tour with Paul & Bart was not only fun but informational as they provided us with interesting facts about the island! Jealine & Alex were the real MVP’s though!! They were soo personable and gave us the experience of a lifetime. Without them, we would have not had such an awesome trip. We are grateful to have met them and can’t wait to come back!! 100% recommend Ocean Encounters (ask for Jealine & Alex) !!!! Loopt wel los !

We had a great experience using Ocean Encounters. We dove with them one day by boat and then rented equipment for a shore dive on our own. Chrissy helped us get all set up and she was super patient answering all of our questions. Alex was our guide on our boat dive and he made sure we had a great dive and pointed out all kinds of stuff I would have probably missed. We would 100% use them again--so easy!

My wife and I just got back from a trip and only have good things to say about Chrissy and the rest of the group at the Ocean Encounters Sunscape location. We only do a few dives a year and Chrissy got us set up with a couple of really nice comfortable dives as well as making us feel at ease about doing an unguided shore dive right from the resort. I can honestly say that the two boat dives we did were the most relaxed I have ever been on and our dive master Alex was great with pointing things out as well as pacing the group.

Ocean Encounters is an excellent company to dive with. Well trained and friendly staff. Good rental equipment and conveniently located. I have been diving with them for over ten years now, and have seen many changes and new faces. One thing remains the same - Excellent customer service!
