Comments Small operation that caters to 6-8 divers on a boat rated for 20. Nick and his divemaster, Ramone, were very knowledgeable in all the areas visited and excelled at helping divers into and out of the water. Helped divers locate unusual and small critters but did not impose themselves. Sites visited provided plenty of fish and corals for experienced as well as beginning divers. They maximize the use of mooring buoys on established dive sites. Their personal service and attention to their divers promotes their popularity as a premier dive operation on Grand Bahamas.
Island Seas Resort is nearby and offers excellent accommodations for divers and non-divers alike. On site restaurant and good beach side facilities. Recommend rental car to visit other locations on the island.
