Went scuba diving on our honeymoon in February 2010. We walked down the beach from our hotel. I think we dove 4 times with Dressel Divers Club. We have a great time and the crew were great.

We joined Chico for a snorkeling trip to three rocks and the canyon. 90 minutes on the water. He was a great guide, respectful of all guests despite a wide range of experience. Great value— I recommend this excursion.
