We did a barrier reef dive trip with this company. The staff, equipment, boat, and dive experience were all excellent. Oh, and the lunch they served was yummy! The crew was very friendly and knowledgeable. I would definitely dive with them again.

I have been snorkeling in Thailand many times, Mexico and Maui. This trip was the BEST ever!! Hansel, our guide, was VERY knowledgeable. I can't recommend this company enough! We saw an abundance of sea life and reef.
