These guys were great. Our guest house, village view had recommended them. We are a family with a jr diver. They were fantastic. We had a couple different dive masters. All were great. Great staff, great boat, fun dives!

Best thing about this group: great service. My husband and I learned a great deal from our guides. The boat looks a little dinky, but it'll take you everywhere you need to go. Their new office is right next to ESA hotel-- a really nice...More
