Comments Ocean Frontiers is a wonderful dive operation with superior service, particularly for experienced divers. Max 12 divers per boat. They load & unload your equipment from the boat, mount it to the tank, switch it to fresh tank between dives, rinse & store it overnight. Two tank dives start with a deep wall dive, often dropping in via a narrow coral canyon, opening out onto the wall at around 100'. On the deep portion of the wall dives they keep a close eye on everyone, with max 6 divers per dive master, then allow all with computers to finish the dive to their own profile. 2nd dive on a shallower reef, often consisting of mazes of coral canyons & swim-throughs (diver's option to go guided or unguided).
