Comments Dove with Dive Exuma for 2 boat dives - (my short time on the island limited my availability for diving). Both dives were at 35 to 40 ft. Dive Exuma picked me up at my cottage and returned me to it after diving. Brand new 36' TwinVee dive boat with head, first aid kit and oxygen on board. Giant stride entry off the stern - dive ladder for re-boarding from the stern. Matthew and Amie offer VERY personalized service. I hadn't been diving in almost 6 years - they offered to help me gear up my tank if I needed any assistance, and do any refresher skills I wanted, in addition to making sure I was comfortable and "ok" once in the water. In depth dive briefings at each site - Amie and dive master Garvin pointed out several critters that I would not have seen otherwise. I didn't stay at the accommodations by the dive operations, so I can't comment on those. However, I plan to return to Exuma and will definitely dive with Dive Exuma again - and for more than just 2 dives. Great dive operation - I highly recommend Exuma and Dive Exuma to anyone looking for a laid-back atmosphere on a vacation.
