Scuba Jeff's was incredible. We spent 4 days snorkeling here and tried the discovery scuba diving for the first time, which I would highly recommend. The equipment all seemed new and the dive instructors were super competent and made us feel like we were in good hands. Corals were great and there are tons of fish and turtles everywhere you swim.
There was three of us sharing a four person room, although we ended up sleeping outside in the hammocks most nights. When else can you sleep under the stars and wake up with sea turtles swimming around you? It's magical.
Scuba Jeff's is a smaller business than some of the competition, which we liked because you really got to know everyone you're with and you become like a little family. It was also much cheaper here than other places we looked at. The staff were incredible, knowledgable and really made us feel at home. Food was a little repetitive but still good. And if you want to switch up the menu you can by crab from the locals and the staff will cook it up for you - delicious!
Overall it was an incredible experience and we were so happy that we booked through Scuba Jeff's!
