Initially disappointed as tried to rent a boat with "Captain Option" but unfortunately no Captains available on the day requested.
As an alternate I tried the Jet Ski tour based at the nearby Holiday Inn. The guide was very knowledgeable and the quality of the jet ski excellent.
Great fun and highly recommended.

Thank Andy G

The staff is amazing. I spent a few days with Eric and am now a certified diver. Eric is very knowledgeable, but more importantly he is very patient and encouraging. Everyone there was very friendly and supportive. The reefs are so beautiful. If you are considering getting certified, this is the place to visit. I feel very confident after all the training and I know that I learned from the best.

We used them since we were at the Holiday Inn Express. They have a mini shop there, but their main shop is nearby, less than 1 mile. Their prices are great, and their personnel was very friendly.
The snorkel trip was great, nothing to complain. They provide good boats, and go to nearby reefs, with 2 1 hour snorkel swims at different reefs. It was a great deal.
The scuba was nice, but it seems targeted towards novice divers, which was not my case. For advanced divers, I think other diving companies would be better suited. But since I had my family with me doing snorkeling, it worked well for us.

Reserved a boat for the day, when we showed we were told the boat was damaged and we were out of luck. Pick up was at 8:00 am and the first phone call was at 8:33, two minutes before we walked in the door. The staff couldn't have cared less. We ended up booking a snorkel and dive trip....I asked for a discount for our trouble and the question was ignored. Will not use this company ever again.

Booked last minute (night before) due to another shop having boat problems. Reservation and check in was a breeze, had to pay at time of reservation. Loaded my gear on to boat, hard weights were available. Took of on time with 12 divers and 4 snorkelers, boat fumes were making people going to and coming from the dive sites. Before dives a brief explanation of dive site was given. 1 hour bottom time even though I had over 1200 psi left after each trip, had to set up, change, and disassemble my own gear. Free guided tour underwater or you can go on your own. Water provided, cooler for own snacks available. Lowest depth was 28' average was 20' I wouldn't recommend snorkelers take this trip, you probably won't see much.
