Did a shallow wreck dive and a reef dive. The crew was very helpful and friendly. We'll definitely dive with them again if we're in the area!

We'd hoped for two days of diving for my husbands birthday but only got one in due to choppy seas. The crew made it well worth our money and time. We will definitely be back next time we are in the area!

Planning a visit summer 2016. 4/6 family members haven't been snorkeling before. I assume instructions will be given, but is there a guide in the water as well? 2 of the family members are teens. Thanks for any information.
