Great place to sit with friends have dinner, and a drink. The views of people night diving near the shore are great. The staff was friendly, and let us take our time to really enjoy the ocean breeze as we drank our wine.

This was my first dive trip and it will be hard to top. The staff here is friendly, professional and fun. The dive shop and gift shop are fantastic and the grounds are gorgeous. The cabin that we stayed in was perfect, 2 bedroom, 2 baths and a well stocked kitchen. It was quiet and had a great porch

First time renting equipment there.. first set of regulators given to me did not have a depth guage or air pressure gauge. I returned them to the rental shop. The man there was about to hand a second set of regulators that had the depth guage broken. Finally I got a set of regulators that were ok. I went down to the tanks and continued to set up my equipment to find out my low pressure inflator hose was damaged on my BCD.. I had to return that as well. BEWARE OF RENTING THERE EQUIPMENT. I rented for me, my wif and son. My confidence in the equipment was really poor. When renting equipment that your life depends on, it xhould be top notch. They apparently do not check equipment when it is returned or prior to renting it out... Booo dive location is good. Just rent from home or bring your own equipment.

The habitat of captain Don is on the sea, the restaurant is on the edge of the sea on a prominence overlooking sunsets or the dive boats at mooring . The sun always shone, clean fresh drinking water flows out of the taps, the ocean water is crystal and filled with life. A buoyancy checkout dive becomes a full scale diving brochure just off the dock, tropicals in profusion.

Capt Don’s resort, dive shop and Rum Runners Restaurant are superb. The rooms are clean and very comfortable. The dive operation is safe, great rental gear, plenty of tanks and the dive guides/ instructors are first rate. Rum Runners restaurant offers great breakfast buffet as well as lunches, dinners and snacks. We were very impressed and would stay there again anytime!! Thank you all for a fabulous vacation!
