Comments I was last at Pirates Point 15 years ago and had a most wonderful time. I since took a hiatus from diving due to kids and family, but have returned to diving. We returned to Pirates Point and had a most wonderful time, just as great as I remembered it being. The staff makes everyone feel like family. The diving is laid back and we did 2 60-75 minute dives each day.... Meals are amazing. My husband did his open water there and was well schooled and very quickly became a proficient diver! I did my nitrox certification there with Martha and felt very well educated.
The company of other divers was so enjoyable, most are returning guests and we all shared great stories. Each day ended with cocktails at the bar at 6.30 and dinner at 7.30. One of the women in our group was a non-diver and greatly enjoyed the solitude of the resort while we were diving. The hammocks along the beach were quite addictive.
I cant wait to get back.... and it will be sooner than 15 years!!!
