Not impolite, but lacking in customer experience, communication, and professionalism. The dive was unimpressive and customer satisfaction didn't seem to be a priority. My buddy was a newly certified open water diver. When I called about availability, I specifically said "Do you have any trips...More

We went out early this morning with 3 young children. The water was great. The crew took us snorkeling in a couple of spots and to see dolphins. The best part was seeing the dolphins!!!

I honestly don't know...I already had my certificate. Normally, most places you do the pool 1 weekend & openwater the 2nd weekend. I know this place is a 5 star PADI resort and does have a pool on site
