Went there for a weekend with friends, we wanted to try something different and ended up having a great time. The place looks weird on the outside, since it seems like stock on the 80's, but overall they offer a great experience. They took us...More

We rented 9 sets of snorkeling gear and four were damaged. The owner did not seem to care when we returned the gear and he did not offer to compensate us in any way. We were disappointed...bring your own gear.
