Comments DivDiveDive is an excellent operation and is the recommended dive operation of the Wyndham Nassau Resort. Everyone at DiveDiveDive went out of his way to be accomodating and helpful. On dive days, the staff loaded our gear onto the dive boat each morning. Guests readied their own tanks each dive. Entry was giant sride off the dive step with easy exit up the dive ladder. The captain honored requests for specific dive sites when possible, and the boat went out with as few as 2 divers aboard by special arrangement. The dive briefings were detailed and the divemasters were eager to find interesting critters.

There was a secure gear storage space so we didn't have to take our wet gear back to the hotel after washing it in the fresh water rinse tanks. On our last dive day, they allowed us to keep our gear there overnight and then delivered it to us at our hotel the next evening.

We would definitely dive with these folks again and would choose to stay at the DiveDiveDive resort over returning to the Wyndham.
