We had a wonderful experience diving with Luis last year (with another company) so there was no question we would follow him when he opened his own operation. As others have noted, Luis has a small boat, no more than six divers at a time. He is a second generation DM and knows the reefs intimately. He gave us the opportunity to dive at our skill level, an option not provided on the cattle boats. Captain Shaggy was great as well, as were the snacks and surface interval. We'll be back in January for more!

I have been diving with Luis for several years when he was employed through another dive company. Now I am so excited to say that he began his own company. He is without a doubt one of the very best dive masters you will ever have the chance to dive with. It is like getting to dive with a family friend instead of just a dive company. The very best personal service. He worked to accommodate our group of 8 with various dive experience and snorkelers and just swimmers. Three of us were divers 2 of which are new to diving. The rest were new snorkelers from adult to kids. We were traveling with a cruise ship and were only in town with the day. Everyone agreed that this was the best excursion of our cruise, even better than dolphins in Roatan or zip lining in Belize. Typically he limits diving to only 6 but he worked with us for this day. He provided such personal service including snacks, water, sodas, and even towels. The only reason he is not number 1 on TripAdvisor yet is because his company is new. You feel so relaxed and at peace when diving with Luis. When you arrive, you never have to take care of your gear until you leave again if you don't want to. Each dive you see something unique and I can't imagine any person not surfacing completely amazed with your dive experience with him. He took us to the very best place for our surface interval so we could see the starfish and the kids LOVED it. We arrived at the marina after a very short taxi ride from the cruise ship. If you are staying at a resort he will typically pick up directly from the resort. His prices are competitive with other dive operations that do not have the personal service. I highly recommend ScubaLuis. He will always be our 1st choice.

This was the best excursion!! Luis and Shaggy were awesome. This was mine and my daughters first time to snorkel in the middle of the ocean and it was the best! We seen starfish, jellyfish, stingrays and several different fish. Luis was great to make sure all of us had a wonderful time. Would recommend ScubaLuis to anyone!!

If you want personalized service, then this is the dive operation for you. Luis allows (within reason!) divers to choose their dive location for each dive, provides a valet service for all your equipment, has a very reliable boat with Shaggy as Capitan.

Weather permitting you'll be on the best dive sites before anyone else on the island, AND, you'll get the best guided tours on those dives. Every time.

Unprecedented service. Thanks Luis
