Comments Great service from this small, well run family business, based @ Flamboyant Hotel. Great attention to customers, friendly local DMs & boat crew. Running efficient, friendly training courses.

Diving from day boats, entered by wading from beach. Good variety of sites and some good wrecks. Good for 1-2 weeks diving (2/3 dives a day), caribbean sun, local culture and an unspoilt island - a few cruise ships in season but small scale for the Caribbean.

In 10 dives highlights were a pair of Mantas off the Bianca C, several seahorse, lots of photogenic arrowhead crabs, many moray, jvl drums, good condition reefs & good wreck diving.

Highly recommended operator run by Phil & Helen.
