Comments This was my first time with Aldora Divers,(azul788@Prodigy.net.mx) but not my last. They don't believe in the "Cattle Boat" mentality. Small dive parties on small fast boats. They pick you up on time. The large steel tanks allow for extended bottom time. Every dive was over an hour bottom time. Interval time is spent on land where you can stretch your legs, buy a bite to eat and talk to other divers. Aldora Divers bends over backwards to make your dive trip all that you want it to be.
