Deep Blue was one of the best operations we have been with on any trip. We
had researched them in the Chapbook and found the reviews to be accurate.
Debby did everything she could to accomodate divers. My wife had only been
certified for 3 years and had only Advanced. She felt as comfortable as I
did with my 13 years of experience. All briefings were detailed and covered
the necessary background. All of the divemasters took their jobs and our
safety very seriously They were also very environmentally aware and
concerned about the conditions of the reef. Even when there were fast
currents such as at Columbia and Las Palmas divesites they found toadfish,
nurse sharks and turtles and found shelter to observe them.
When one of the Deep Blue boats broke down; Debby arranged for another boat
so that no diving was missed. The shop, located in town, was a hub of
post-dive activities. Requested dive sites were honored if possible. Most
trips were 10 or less. Dive groups were never larger than 6-8 divers. Pick
up at the Las Brisas pier was no problem for either morning or afternoon
Las Brisas is the quintessential dive resort. Nice rooms, nice pools, good
food and bars. No problems with not diving with Paradise Divers across the
street or not getting an all-inclusive package. Hanging areas on the
balconies. Close to town and shopping. Highly recommended for families and
