Very nice, very professional staff.
Two-tank dive cost us $100 USD.
First dive was 65 ft. Could have gone MUCH deeper, but our dive master "doesn't like to go deeper than 65'," so make sure the dive you'll be making is the dive you'll be happy with BEFORE you book the dive. They took us to the dive location, we hit the bottom, and dove around in a relatively BLAND location - not much color, not much to see, not very many fish at all. Our dive master took us RIGHT TO THE EDGE OF THE WALL, but wouldn't take us over the edge - very disappointed.
Our second dive location was Coral Gardens. At it's deepest point, it was 51'. At it's shallowest, it was about 10-15'. THIS location, however was MUCH better than the first, and I'd guess you could waste a WHOLE day on THIS dive site alone :o)
From what I have been told, EVERY dive shop in Sosua dives all the same dive sites. It appears as though EVERY dive shop in the area uses the SAME type UNCOVERED fishing-skiff boats.
If you're going to plan on diving while in Sosua/Caberete area, find a shop that is manned WHILE you are there, as we tried booking a dive with three other shops before we got to these guys. To most, this may not seem like a big deal, but we found it was quite easy communicate via email with the dive shops, and then when you show up to book your dive, NOBODY IS THERE. These guys had someone in their dive center EVERY time we showed up.
Can't say anything 'bad' about this shop as a whole, but as I said before, next time we dive with them, we'll be a bit more 'clarifying' in our expectations. I KNOW there is good stuff underwater just waiting to be seen, and I know these guys can get you there - I just wanna be on the boat when it gets there :o)
To Mike (the owner):
Biggest disappointment about diving in Sosua??? There is not a single vendor OR dive shop that has any 'cool' dive t-shirts. Are you LISTENING Mike??? Get some DIVE t-shirts that have more than just your tiny logo on the front. Get some with simple, NICE, dive-related graphics. You could retire on the revenue you'd generate. I spoke to LOTS of divers that all said the same thing :o) Divers spend GOOD money on the experience, and want t-shirts that show off their diving experience :o)
