Comments Our dive was managed by the owner, Keith. He is very knowledgable of the area. There were good dive briefings prior to the dive, and we were all introduced to other divers and made to feel very comfortable with all on the boat. Keith dives with us and takes a camera. Pictures and a few brief movies are sold following the dive. Keith is very intent on helping people with proper bouyancy and reef protection. Even some of his movies were taken to help divers understand what they could do to improve their diving skills (primarily reduce weight) and how to better control bouyancy. He takes time to show off fish, help identify unique features of an area, and provided awsome pictures of our experience. In all our diving, we've never found a dive operation more interested in helping us have a good dive experience. Abaco is relatively shallow diving. Our deepest dive was 70 feet. Most dives were only to 25 feet, but there was a wealth of reef life and good visability. This would be an excellent destination for beginners and those who want easy diving and longer bottom times. Dive operations like this need to be encouraged with our business as it's obvious Keith really cares!
