Liquid Blue Divers is FANTASTIC!  They are a small, personalized outfit
that goes the extra mile to make sure that your wishes and needs are met. 
Michaela runs the daily details of the shop and scheduling, and goes many
extra miles to solve problems and tackle challenges to make sure that
everybody is very happy. She was also extremely helpful in answering
e-mails before we ever got there, providing details on transportation and
lodging suggestions.  
    Liquid Blue Divers operates a small fast boat limited to only 6 divers.
 That makes for great personalized diving and they get an early enough
start to avoid the crowds of other dive boats. The steel 100/120 tanks
allow long dives (65-90 minutes). When high winds and chop led to the port
being closed to small boats, Micheala got on the phone to arrange for our
group and DM to dive with another dive shop on a larger boat. It was nice
not to lose a day of diving during our vacation, and also served as a good
reminder of how nice it is to dive with a small outfit on a small boat.
  Roberto and Jorge are the dive masters, and do a fantastic job at leading
dives that will meet everyone's desires. They ask where you want to go or
what sort of things you'd like to see and plan the dives accordingly.  Both
are excellent DMs as well as fun people to be around. 
  When you dive with these guys you feel like close personal friends rather
than part of a cattle drive. In the past I have dived with Aldora
(Michaela, Roberto, and Jorge were formerly with Aldora) but I heartily
recommend the personalized diving you get with Liquid Blue Diving.  You
won't be disappointed!
