First off this is the first and oldest dive shop in town. Many have popped up recently(8 new in 2011 alone), so they do know the area and value their reputation. I haven't dove a lot at all so maybe my opinion isn't the best but overall i had a good experience. I dove during peak season so the boat was maxed out at 12 divers. There was 6 beginners and 6 experienced. The guys dropped the beginners off while the rest went and dove. This is good if you don't like to be stuck diving with beginners. There was plenty of food, tea, snacks etc. I felt that considering the crowd these guys handled it pretty smoothly.

We did three dives with this company on every dive the starting pressure was less than 200bar and when i raised this i was told to dive until i had 20bar left which i have never been advised to do this before, haphazard attitude to safety. Would recommmend checking all equipment first as ours was very poor - we later found out the company had bought second hand gear in order to save money. Eqipment was generally really poor condition. We had a leaking BCDs and a faulty regulator so i was inhaling salt water and so had to use my octopus. When we reported problems they were just shrugged off.
Anka the dive instructor was good and attentive but the divermaster we were paired with had only dived in the area a couple of times and was clearly inexperienced and had an overly cocky attitude. After indicating three times that i was unable to equalize he took my hand and dragged me further down! Later he deflated both our BCDs - despite our boyancy being correct, this caused us to smash down on to the coral below! The divemaster did not even care!!
The diving in this area is amazing and i wish i had gone with another company. I would never recommend this company to anyone.

Went in April with Bajo Dive on a 3 day dive cruise. The area is beatyfull, the dive spots are perfect. Sometimes very strong currents, I would recommend this area not for beginners.
Boat trip was well organised, staff was very friendly. Boat condition was OK, dive equipment was not the best but OK. In all 3 very good days

I recently went out with Bajo Dive Club and was really pleased with the experience. The team were experienced and very friendly. They tailored the day to what we wanted to see, and all in all it was a fantastic experience.
