Christie is simply great, communication via email was as smooth as could be. They came and picked us up at the hotel. The prices were also inline with what other operators charge, however we feel we got way more then what we payed for.
Small shop on a really nice beach! The staff is very professional but also loves to have fun and will guide you to the better places. Most dive sites are only 15-20 min away.
If you want to be pampered this this probably not the dive center for you, since they do ask you to carry your gear to the water and assemble it once on the boat. However, under water, you swim until you run out of air and not for measly 30-45 minutes.
The DMs are concerned about safety, and do take requests, for instance reefs vs wrecks and so on.
They are also great to find and point out cool stuff to you.
Also, great to see them thinking about the environment, and cleaning the reef whenever they can.
We really enjoyed diving with them and will recommend to all our friends.

Christine is an excellent dive master, and she appears to run a happy ship

They are an attentive and helpful team, and provided some excellent reef diving around the west and south of the island.

They are very eco-conscious as the company name suggests, and are actively taking a part in looking after the health of the diving environment.

In 5 good dives i was lucky enough to see (among a wide range of beautiful sealife) sharks, turtles, sea horses, lobster, queen conch and of course lots of lion fish...

What a gem this is. The Dive Centre is located at the Coyaba beach resort on Grand Anse beach. It is welcoming, friendly, professional and well organised. They offer all the usual facilities of equipment hire and courses. Dives are two in the morning (surface interval is normally spent on the dive boat) and one in the afternoon. Night dives are also available. The boat is an ideal size for the six or seven divers usually on board and is accessed from the beach.
The dive sites are equally impressive. A fabulous mix of wrecks, reefs, and walls to match the best in the world. If you have dived the Red Sea you will love this.
All the dives we did (12 in total) were within 15 minutes of the dive centre.

We have been diving all over the world and have about 4000 dives between the two of us. We selected Grenada principally because it is one of the few remaining dive destinations in the Atlantic/Caribbean on our list. Though we visited during the hurricane season, Grenada is on the outside edge of the risk-belt and we had virtually perfect weather for 7 straight days of diving. The new Marine Preservation Area is rich with sea-life and ideal for the critter hunter. The diving at 30-60 feet is excellent and the reef is in very good condition despite some serious bleaching during a couple of warm years since 2000. Several of the wrecks are worth diving, especially the famous Bianca C, the 600+ cruise ship at about 125 feet, a must-see. We had several days of current and reduced visibility (30-50 feet) but this hardly detracted from the diving. As most of the diving is drift diving, the dives are effortless and long. In sum: well worth the trip.

What distinguishes this diving is the leadership of Christine Finney, both divemaster and Eco Dive owner. Christine is a Canadian marine biologist with many years of experience both as a dive master/operator and scientist. She is the consumate professional, extremely attentive to divers at every level, is an expert on the flora and fauna of the region, and an absolute delight to her clients. Great morale and professionalism among Christine's staff, excellent boat and gear, easy routine with all of the ease of storing, rinsing, hanging, approximity of the boat, the short, fast rides to the dive sites -- all that one looks for in an ideal location and operation. Christine is, understandably, a valuable resource to the conservation-minded in Grenada, is involved in many policy-making roles on the island, and her influence is reflected in the quality of the reef and the diving experience. Hurray, Christine.

Thank you, Grenada, for a lovely diving experience. We'll be back soon, and will be referring others who seek what you deliver so well.

This was trip number three to Grenada, and my third time diving with EcoDive and I just couldn't get enough of it! I completed my deep dive speciality course and did my mapping project of the sculpture park towards my DM plus lots of recreational dives over two weeks.

The whole team are professional, experienced and make diving with them fun and educational (if you want it to be!) with excellent knowledge of all the great critters and wrecks in the Grenadian waters. I can't recommend enough for any level of diver.
