Great service, great staff! Pick up and drop off at our apartment. Locations were on point, with varied depths between the two dives. Will dive with them again! Recommend seasickness tablets if the water is rough. 🐟😀

Thanks for your review, it was a pleasure having you dive with us. Carlisle Bay is one of most requested and favorite dive sites. Very shallow at a max depth of 40-50FT and wonderful for both divers and snorkelers. Safe Diving The Dive Shop Team
