Comments My partner previously dove with Grand Bahamas Scuba and we tried them again this trip. Excellent service! Came and picked us up every day from our B&B. Run by Fred Riger and his wife Melinda. They attempt to tailor the trips to the needs of the passengers. Got excellent dive rates. Nitrox available. Took us out every day we wanted even when conditions were choppy. Also took us to Ben's Cavern and Mermaid's Hole for cavern diving. What a treat if you are certified! These guys don't advertise much so you have to find them. But what you get is personalixed service and friendly folks who like to dive with you rather than the catttle car operations that also exist on the island. Give them a try for a different experience. They also do OW training, specialties, etc. Also check out different B&B's on the island instead of hotels. You can get much better rates and get to know friendly local folks.
