I emailed ahead to set up diving for the week I was in Antigua, staying at the Verandah Resort & Spa. Mamora Dive Shop is on the St. James Club property, a sister resort to the Verandah. Linda promptly responded to my email, letting me know there is a complimentary shuttle to transport you to & from the shop each day of diving. It is low season in July, so the boat was not full of divers, a very nice surprise! The Atlantic seas were a bit rough, up to 8 foot swells at times, but Teon, our boat captain, did a fabulous job! Linda is a wonderful dive instructor!! I thoroughly enjoyed our dives!! It was so nice to relax & look around leisurely, checking in every so often, but having plenty of room to explore! As others have said, Linda is very professional & safety is her first concern. On one dive at about 70 feet, I was unable to clear my right ear...not something I usually have difficulty with. I signaled to her & we ascended to a depth where the pressure wasn't bothering me & continued our dive. I was able to store my gear at the shop each day instead of taking it back with me, a great convenience! Bottled water is available on the boat, but do bring a snack if you would like to eat something during the surface interval. The boat does not have a bathroom, so be sure to take care before you embark! Great Experience! I also want to thank the owner, Mr. Barrett, for embracing/funding the lion fish hunt. As divers, we appreciate your efforts to keep our oceans healthy! I look forward to diving with LInda and Teon when we return to Antigua in the future!
