What a fantastic experience! Darwin was extremely informative and professional in his guidance. I had not dove for over 2 years and under his wing, I knew exactly what I was doing and felt extremely comfortable and safe. Great price for a great service!

Darwin and the boys took real good care of me for the fun dive. Really made sure you understood the equipment and the skills learnt before going deeper. Would be happy to use the company again if to return.
