Comments Liquid Blue Divers was a fine operation. I found that Roberto and Michaela run a first class operation. They were attentive from the reservation process through dive completion. It is very nice when you get on the boat and the first questions are, "What would you like to see or where would you like to dive?"

They use 120 cf tanks which allow plenty of bottom time regardless of depth or air consumption of others on the boat. There was never a dive of less than one hour. Roberto was an excellent DM and has eagle eyes to find some of the things he did. These are friendly people that enjoy what they do. It is nice to feel that they really want to show their divers a great time, not just that they have to go to work again that day.

Iberostar was a good place for the family to be while I was diving. They enjoyed the grounds and the service. One problem that seemed to be emerging was that Iberostar was getting a little picky about other ops picking up divers on their dock. I really enjoy being so close to the reefs. When I stay here it is last on the boat and first off.
