We enjoyed our recent excursions with Pleasure Divers very, very much. They know where all the great dive sites are located, and took us to some beautiful locations. Gino and Kim are friendly, chatty, and welcoming, and you feel like you've been invited into their home (and, since they live on the boat, you really have).
I loved that this was not a "cattle cruise", and, though my boyfriend and I were the only passengers on each day of diving, we liked knowing that they don't book a lot of people; their max is 6. They will pretty much take you wherever you wish to go, though they might make recommendations if your preferences are spaced too far apart to do in a single day, or if the weather isn't cooperating. Since we were using them the next day as well, they kept our scuba equipment on the boat overnight, and it was ready to go the next morning..... no losing track of masks or fins, no ending up with someone else's stuff. There is a fresh water tank on the dock for rinsing equipment just steps from the boat.....SOOO convenient.
My boyfriend is a Scuba instructor, I'm an experienced diver, and on our second day of diving, they let us dive a wreck and the Christ of the Abyss statue on our own, which we enjoyed very much. The boat was comfortable and fantastic; I do usually get seasick, but I never did on these dives. The rides to the dive sites and back were so peaceful and relaxing.
Whether you are novice divers, and require more personal attention, or if you are experienced divers, and wish to dive unassisted or with a guide, this dive op is for you. After diving with Pleasure Divers, I would NEVER go back to the large dive ops again if I have anything to say about it, as I now see that there are so many advantages to diving with Pleasure Divers. These were probably the best dives we have ever had, and were definitely the longest. I HIGHLY recommend!
