My husband and I were on a Carnival cruise and took a diving excursion through UNEXO and were so happy we went. We got our diving certification in the US in a lake and this was our first "real open water dive." I was scared out of my mind when they started talking about an 80 ft dive and was going to sit out. The deepest I had gone was 25 ft. I was extremely panicked. Steven was completely understanding and promised that he would be with me the entire way. If I got down and felt uncomfortable he promised to bring me immediately back up. Well, once I got down I was extremely comfortable and he checked with me multiple times. I could not have been happier with our dive masters. Steven and Keith were completely understanding and absolutely amazing. If they had not been with us I don't think I would have gone. Thank you so much!

My daughter (age 11) and I really had a great experience swimming with the dolphins! This is a well run professional outfit. We did the swim in their protected lagoon and it was magical! A true once in a lifetime experience. You get to swim and do tricks with the dolphins. There is a kiss and a hug too! Lots of opportunities to take pictures and they have a photographer as well. The trainers are very professional and you can tell that they really care for the dolphins. I would highly recommend this experience when in Freeport Bahamas.

They made room for my wife and I and were very professional! I enjoyed diving with them even with a full boat! I am new too diving and did not want to ruin the dive for more experienced divers so I was nervous! I took my time equalizing on the way down and never felt rushed or bothered when I was ready to ascend they made sure I new where and up I went without disturbing anyone else's dive! At the end the dive master gave me some tips and told me what I was really good at! I enjoyed my time with them above and below the water!

I would strongly suggest going on the Shark Dive. As for as Diving goes it is really easy, they just weigh you down and you go down on a line kneel down and sit there the whole time. I didn’t have enough weight on me so i had a hard time sitting still so over weigh your self. I didn’t expect to see sharks right away but as soon as a started descending i saw sharks below me it was kind of scary but with all the safety divers and the other feeder and camera guy i felt very safe. You sit there and watch the feeder feed 15-20 sharks then he brings them around and you can pet the sharks and he makes them go up on their nose straight up! It is unbelievable and i think that is what will set them apart from others is the feeder, is he so good with the sharks. They act like little puppies trying to get treats they are not scary at all when you are down there but you do keep reminding your self not to get to comfortable. You are not supposed to pet them unless he allows you to even though they are in reaching distance all the rules are there for a reason and makes me feel more safe. It was a really cool dive and we bought the video to prove we swam with sharks. You have to try it!
