“Great diving & staff”
Reviewed March 16, 2014

We dove with UNEXSO 5 days and it was great. The staff were AWESOME - safe, knowledgeable and very friendly. We had great dives, sharks on almost all dives. We also did the shark dive, which was great as well - very close up experience with the sharks and giant groupers. Would love to go back & dive with them again some day.

“UNEXO diving trip”
Reviewed March 5, 2014 via mobile

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!

“What an amazing experience to swim with dolphins!”
Reviewed March 3, 2014

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.

“Very good place”
Reviewed March 2, 2014 via mobile

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!
