A friend and I took CRD&S's Cano Island trip today. We arrived early and the staff was already organizing equipment. Sebastian and Christian were the dive masters and quickly confirmed all sizes and needs for all participants in a group that had both divers and snorklers. They gave folks a chance to have breakfast which is at the adjacent cafe which is excellent!
After a trip to the beach in Uvita we took a 1.5 hour trip stopping to watch dolphins and sea turtles. Upon arrival at the island we checked in with the ranger and then our group spilt into divers and snorklers. The divemasters did a good job managing both groups and made sure that we didn't sit around too much. Good lunch on the island and rest time and then we went out for 2nd time in water.
Conditions at Cano were weak the day we were there. But it was better diving than I've experienced in other sites in the region.
Staff set up our equipment and made it one of the more pleasant dive trips organizationally that I've had.
I did read another reviews tough review of the company and feel that it was a little unfair and perhaps a little unrealistic. They seemed very concerned that only the dive master spoke English. That's not atypical when traveling in many countries. The divemasters speak very solid English and all essential communication is handled well. Their equipment may not be the newest, but it is quite adequate to the tasks at hand. The trips are well priced and I feel like we got fair value. Our divemaster kept excellent track of our group but also moved us a along at a good clip.
All and all, a very good value and a solid dive shop.
