Comments We discovered Indigo Divers after Hurricane Ivan (2004) wiped out our regular dive operation and have been diving with them ever since, at least once a year, sometimes twice. Chris and Kate run a very friendly, intimate (6 diver max), intelligent and very professional dive operation. Chris will give a briefing before each dive with maximum depth limits and recommended dive times, however, if you're on a computer you can stay down as long as you don't put your computer into decomp mode and come up with at least 500 psi in your tank. Chris will lead the dive, with Kate at the back of the group. Chris will be out of the water with the first surfacing diver leaving Kate with the rest of the group. They are great at keeping an eye on everyone without being overbearing & interfering. They are also great at pointing out creatures big and small. During the surface interval Kate breaks out the drinks, "home made" cookies and cut up fruit for everyone. If you need a towel, they've got one ready for you.

Need a restaurant recommendation? They'll tell you about the best spots. Need help identifying a critter? They've got the Paul Humann books on the boat and will help you identify what you saw.

After a few days of diving with Chris and Kate they become friends with a dive boat. We are very lucky to have discovered Indigo Divers and now consider Chris and Kate good friends.

Now, about Warren... Kate has strict instructions to make sure to NEVER book us on the boat with him!
