We scubadived for a week. There was not much enthusiasm from the staff and only few smiles, good mornings or how were your dives? Some of the staff seemed surprised that We did more than a coupeer of dives a day and nitrox tanks had to be carried up and Down long step stairs. The House reef was excellent and... More

We came back to dive several days , just from their pier to the reef and it was an amazing diving experience. Gorgeous place, easy diving for beginners, great instructors and deep diving or night dive for adventurous people.

Took a snorkel trip to Blue Room Cave and a sunken ship. Both very fun spots we wouldn't have seen from shore snorkeling. They said we'd get to snorkel with turtles, but we only got to see them from the boat. Rented a kayak for $15/hr, which was very fun to go to Grande Kanip.

Recommend to us from the B&B we're staying at. We emailed in somewhat last minute to see if we could join Wednesday's snorkel trip. Response was quick and informative. Great start! When we got there, the staff were very helpful and friendly. Especially on the boat, with Daniel and Captain Roy. Gorgeous views along the coast as you make your... More

We had an enjoyable time yet it could have been better if they limited the number of participants or included extra guides. On booking I was told that there would be 1-2 guides with us in the water depending on the group size. We had a group of about 18 people and only 1 guide. The guide handled us extremely... More

We went snorkling although this is a SCUBA shop primarily. Our trip was to the "Blue Room" and a sunken ship. We had a small group of seven. Traveled on a dive boat with a certified dive instructor for about 30 min to reach the site. To get to the "Blue Room" required about a 100 yd swim and then... More

The dive shop is professional and clean and the staff are friendly and helpful. The parking lot is secure and dive equipment is in good condition. The house reef (Alice Wonderland) is amazing. It's easy to navigate with tons of special marine lives to discover. We spent 2 days here and saw different things at every dive. Highly recommended.

The location is great, they have everything you need to dive, a good dive store, and great dive masters. Pay atention to the clock: they are normally open daily from 08:00 to 17:00.

We dove with Gowest 4 days over New Years. Well run, professional dive op with staff that went out of their way to accommodate all our requests. Andreas and Ann-Marie were wonderful handling all our pre-trip communications and arrangements and taking care of all our needs during our visit. Would highly recommend.
