I am a PADI certified rescue diver and have dove with many different operations around the Caribbean. VIP definitely lives up to their name. They took care of myself and my snorkeling wife like we were celebrities. Edwin and Meno both were extremely helpful and considerate on my wife's needs and concerns even though she was only along for the ride. They are all more safety conscious than any other operation I have been with even ones that I was being trained by. Predive "buddy" checks and every safety precaution followed made me feel safe and secure on every dive. I would recommend VIP to any diver regardless of certification level.
