  • I had a great time yesterday on a two tank dive. I was picked up by Martin (the owner) and met a bunch of great people at his shop. My Dive Master was Kelly. She insured that my dive buddy and I saw a ton of Marine life. Multiple schools of fish, more eels than I have ever seen on one dive, the largest eel I have ever seen period, White tip reef sharks, octopus, seahorses, lobster, and rays. I am sure there were more. But can’t remember them all. Their organization with the equipment and handling of the divers is first rate. And I would highly recommend them for your next dive. Thanks for the great time, Art Hooper
  • My husband and I are open water certified, but hadn't dove in two years. We did a refresher class with Juan. He was great at assuring we felt confident in the water. We did a total of 4 dives and the entire crew was fun, knowledgeable and paid close attention to safety. We will definitely be diving with them again in the future.
  • Lorenzo & Doug were amazing instructors!! They were super helpful, fun, & very patient with me! Definitely made my first experience one to remember!
  • Fantastic experience as a first time diver. Jesus was very friendly and informative and a great instructor. I always felt secure and safe; thank you for helping me conquer my first dive! Can't wait to get certified.
  • Great folks. Took a 2 tank dive in the bay nearby. Both dives were good. Lot of animals, not much coral. Saw a couple turtles, a white tipped shark, lots of various fish. Staff was all very professional and took good care of everyone. Concierge treatment with all quality gear. Would dive with these folks anytime.
