Lockers for storage right at the dock. Homogeneous experience grouping on
boats. Conscientious divemasters, most good at finding critters. Prices
reasonable - good packages, willing to deal when purchasing packages of 25
or more dives. May buy one, big package and split with another diver.
However, no deals on night dives, even with purchase of sizable packages.
Have used this operation 6 times and will be happy to do so again. Nitrox
$6 extra and 24 hour notice required (not filled on the premises.)
