Comments 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.
