Comments Very pleased with this dive op. They have got good reviews on Scuba board, and they are very deserving of that. We did 7 oceans dives with them. Good dive briefs, very professional and safety conscience. They will go slow (which I love) and will hang around if there is something to watch--ray trying to catch dinner, turtle feeding, cleaning stations etc. DM will point out things for you also. Nice large boat with shade. About a 2-3 minute walk from the dive shop to the boat, and they have a cart to put your gear in and wheel over.
We also did 2 cenotes with them. Very, very safety conscience again. Excellent adventure going into the cenotes.
We will be back to this area, and we will be diving with this dive op again. Very small dive op but very personal.
