I have taken several trips with them to dive the Yukon and the Ruby E. The crew is very friendly and extremely helpful. I always feel welcome. They always do a great job accommodating diver's needs, even when it's a full boat. The boat itself...More

Not for the beginner. They treat you well but it's all up to you to make sure you have a good to great dive. Don't expect them to set you up with a dive buddy. If you are the shy type don't go. I on...More
