Comments Tried to contact this dive operation twice through the resort but never received a response. When I asked them (face to face) about the lack of response, they said that email went to the front desk and that they never forward it to them.
When it was windy and wavy, they couldn't launch their boat from the beach so they only went out twice in a week.
There was no information given on the safety features of the boat. I didn't see any oxygen aboard for emergencies.
Entry was a backward roll and exit was difficult when having an integrated BC because exit was up a ladder set over the side.

I changed dive operations and hooked up with Aquanauts Grenada (Note, they were the only dive operation that responded to my email). They seemed to be the only other viable operation on the island. They were very accommodating. They had three boats with good enty and exit platforms. Rinse tanks for cameras, first aid w/oxygen. Different boats were scheduled for different dive sites. They also handled pick up and return to your resort for a small fee. Briefings were very comprehensive.

Diving in Grenada was really less than I expected or hoped for. Other then the great amount of wrecks available to dive on, the diving was very uneventful. There was little wildlife, what there was was juvenile (probably from overfishing), visibility was less than I expected and the coral was not very colorful(maybe due to light being cut-down because of water clairity). Not mush for photography.
