Overall my fiancée and I were very pleased with our one day excursion with Agua Viva. All of their staff were professional and helpful before during and afterwards. All equipment was well maintained and serviceable. The dive boat clean, well designed and provisioned. As I was renting almost all gear it took some time to sort out some personal weighting issues (under weighted) which was a tad embarrassing and frustrating. But DM Philippe was quite gracious about the whole thing. My fiancée elected to try scuba for the first time via the “Batismo” experience. Her briefing was thorough and well done. Her instructor very patient. The only two criticisms I have would be the lack of time/facilities for a shallow or contained water orientation for the “Batismo” candidates. For my fiancée a stride entry into “deep” water (for someone never having used scuba before) was a tad overwhelming. The task overload and accompanying nervousness resulted in her mask coming off and spitting out her reg. Afterwards she could not regain her comfort level to a point where she could relax and submerge. The instructor and all staff were patient and handled the situation very well so I can not fault them in any way. Still, the situation could likely have been avoided if as I said earlier her first experience breathing through scuba has started with her feet touching bottom. The second criticism was that I felt the shallow (10m max depth) reef we were on didn’t have a lot to offer for me. It was rather silty on the coral heads perhaps because of a lot of recent run off from rain? I did see a nice Golden spotted moray but other than that nothing particularity interesting. Having considerable experience diving in various places around the world perhaps left me expecting too much? Or maybe it was just a bad day on this reef? Again, I can’t really blame the dive operator for this as they were restricted on where we could go given we were diving beside a biological conservation area and reserve coupled with the aforementioned weather issues. All in all I would recommend Agua Viva but be aware and mindful of the issues pointed out.

I decided to do the Open Water PADI course with my 13 year old son at Agua Viva. The diving school was excellent. The instructor Taina was super friendly and knew her stuff! The whole staff on the boat and the school was well equipped and prepared. Excellent service!
