Maybe fourth? Dove and snorkeled with them and to a person they are excellent staff.. serious, thoughtful, yet fun to be with and warm. It is clear they know their business and I recommend them all the time.

Master diver Marlin was very professional. Polite, and aware of our nervousness. To send our 13 yr.old son with him on this scuba dive. My son absolutely loved the dive. Highly recommend this business.

Staff and crew were courteous and professional. Did their jobs just as advertised. The boat crew were helpful and very informative. We have used them numerous times in the past and they did not disappoint on this trip either.

I've gone on 3 separate dives now with APDC and they were all fantastic! I've done the Rainbow River drift twice and the manatee swim once. The customer service is impeccable and the guides are about as knowledgable and caring as they come!
