Comments I brought a dive companion who was new to diving, Fred continuously and gently took her beyond her comfort zone making the dive experience for both of us very enjoyable and overall greatly increased both of our confidence in the water. Fred got us on Nitrox the second day and we were Nitrox certified effortlessly by the end of our trip. While dive conditions were not as good as we hoped, Fred was very accommodating in making the dives a good as possible, such as going deeper to find clearer water and larger fish and retunr trips to dive with dolphin. I would book a trip here soon. Fred has his sights on leaving his paradise withing the next year and a half.

We stayed in an over the water cabana, dined in the room, got couples massages and had a trip that was made truly romantic as a result of the personalized service provided by Kim and her staff.
