HANDS DOWN, best group for diving and snorkeling..!!! These group of guys were able to cater to the level of experience and comfort level in the water. They were professional and very very clean with the equipment. The crew were knowledgeable of their surroundings and able to educate us while on the job. I felt safe at all times, even though I was fearful of the ocean. *HI-5* to Andy, my snorkel guide who helped me over come my fear of sharks and anything under water.
Yes it can be pricey, but It was worth it on a safety and comfort level, in my opinion.Compared to other dive companies on the island, I never felt, as if we were packed like sardines on the boat. The crew would take up to ~20 people total including the crew. 1:5 ratio Guide: Tourist. I saw other boats with 20+ packed and barely able to move around the boat. Their ratio to guides/tourist appeared 1:10.
we did Hol Chan and Shark Alley snorkel that afternoon. And a day later, we did the Blue Hole. Recommend, if you get car sick easily, to invest in Dramamine, take one when waking up, take another during breakfast, then one in the afternoon. The Blue Hole is an all day event, get picked up at 5am, return by 6pm. They provide breakfast, lunch, and fruit/snacks to munch on during your trip. Get an underwater camera at dive shop or in town.
Many Thanks and Abrazos to Andy, Marcos*, and Ernest... thanks for making my experience AWESOME....!!!
