Diving with Cristina is a pure pleasure!  The boat is neat and clean and
plenty of room for up to 12 divers.  Cristina guides the more experienced
divers and Luis, her partner, takes the beginners and less experienced
divers.  The number one issue is always safety.  Also, Crisitna has Nitrox
blends available if asked for in advance.  There were some days that there
were only 3 divers on the boat and other days we had 10.  Regardless, the
dives are well explained.  Cristina knows the reefs so well she knows where
specific creatures have a tendency to be.  We were lion fish hunting one
day and actually bagged one and brought it to the surface.  Cristina has
nets and she instructed each one of us on what we would be expected to do
if we found one.  Not only was the diving delightful, being on the Nena a
pleasure, but feeling like I was part of helping to protect the reefs from
a predator fish was really a great experience.
