It really couldn't have been much better. Our party of four were the only divers on the boat. Our dive master, Daniel, was the best. Two of us are inexperienced divers and two are more seasoned divers. Daniel satisfied all our needs. Extremely thorough safety...More

Last year we did the intro to Nitrox dive, where you can try it out to decide if you want to get certified for it. What a nice thing to do. We got certified. We feel so much better after diving. The variety of dive...More
