“The Best in the world!”
Reviewed June 10, 2013

My husband and I started diving with them back in 1988 on our honeymoon. We continued for 11 years straight until my husband passed away. They are the most wonderful people in the world. Everett will do anything to make your diving AND Jamaican experience memorable and pleasurable. Those are some of my fondest memories. He and his staff are highly trained and all equipment is kept up to the highest standards. We dove on both sides of the island and with other outfits. There is no comparison to Resort Divers. They are the BEST on the island of Jamaica and a MUST if you are diving on the island. Tell Everett Laurie sent you!

“Great hospitality!”
Reviewed June 2, 2013

The day I spent with Resort Divers at Runaway Bay was the highlight of my 7-day trip to Jamaica. The dive sites at Runaway Bay were superior to the ones in Negril. But the hospitality and professionalism on offer were equally impressive. The equipment for rent and the boat were of high quality. Our instructor was very observant and reliable. Also, snacks and drinks were made available throughout the day. On our way back to the hotels. the owner of the shop was also nice enough to take us for a quick tour inland and give us some stories about the development of Runaway Bay. Best value in Jamaica!

I dive with my frind Vicki who is a blind diver, usually we face problematic dive companies who are reluctant to take any risk, despite the fact that Vicki qualified with OW with her sight problem, and we usually have to invoke PADI's help to resolve this.
Not this time! Everett contacted me by return of email and eagerly accepted us assuring us that there was no problem that could not be overcome.
They gave us exceptional dives and were more than helpful at all stages of preparation and diving including picking us up from our hotel next door and delivering us back afterwards.
I have dived for many years and Everett and his team were the most laid back yet professional and competent team, keen to make everyones experience memorable and safe.
The dive site are good and varied, the boat is easily accessible and comfortable for everyone.
very much value for money as well. A few bucks dearer than their rivals a few miles down the road but worth it nd the packages on offer excellent value.
"Completely irie"
A special thanks to Ray for his attention and care whilst diving with such friendliness, they will all be talked about fondly for many years, I have

“First dives for seven years”
Reviewed February 5, 2013

having completed a PADI advance open water certification previously I wanted to do at least one dive. Resort divers were mentioned on the PADI website. Troy, my instructor, was very helpful in assisting me to enjoy the experience. On one dive we swam in a large shoal of Chubb as well as seeing many other fish including a Barracuda.

“Brilliant Dive Company!”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

I was recently in Runaway Bay and used Resort Divers for a 2-tank Dive... and they were nothing short of FANTASTIC!!! I had originally been booked with another company, but when they never showed up at (after previously cancelling on me without any explanation), the lady at the resort's tour desk phoned this company, and I was sooo happy she did!! Within 15 minutes of calling, someone was at the resort to pick me up! They shuttled me to their dive shop (after stopping at an ATM for me) and then I was set up with all my equipment and introduced to Richie, who would be my own personal dive master for the day as I needed a Refresher. Richie was extremelly helpful, friendly, and knowledgeable, and thanks to him and Resort Divers I was able to have a wonderful dive experince. Thanks Sharkies!!!
