Comments My wife and i had an outstanding experience in four days of diving with Graham Maddocks and Triangle Diving. We had some great dives and Graham runs a fine operation. Graham offers as much or little care as you desire. After our first dive, we could pretty much do our thing or go with a divemaster and the rest of the group. Triangle always had 3-4 divemaster/guides in the water. We chose to dive on our own most of the time and this worked great for us. We were always first in and last out, dove our profile and most dives lasted 1+ hours.

The boat is equiped with all safety gear and the divemasters do a role call after each dive. Graham and his entire crew are custmer service orientated and made sure all our desires were met. Dives consisted of wreck dive and than a reef. If your dive plans include Bermuda, I would highly recommend Triangle Diving. You will be treated better than 99% of the dive operations you have been with in the past.

We stayed at the Grotto Bay Resort, very nice colonial stlye hotel. Our room overlooked the dive shop so very convienent. The hotel is a nice 3 star resort and worth the stay. We elected to include the breakfast plan at the hotel and went out to dinner in the evening. If you like fish, I highly recommed the Lobster Pot in Hamilton

Dove today with Triangle. Were attentive and focused on safe practices. I had an ACL reconstruction 3 months ago. Mentioned this to them as I needed extra support with the tank on my back. They were excellent about this and made sure they were there when I was on my feet and coming up the ladder. I would use them again. Rest of your report and rating is consistent with my experience.
