Comments Some of the questions above need to have a "N/A" option, ie accomodations, etc. This dive operator meets you at the dock, and is not associated with a large hotel, and is not a live-aboard.

The divemaster, and captain of their small vessel work very hard to make your dive experience enjoyable, with minimal work on your part.

The boat only holds a maximum of six divers, and in our case, we only had three divers, and one snorkeler. Price was very reasonable for what was nearly a private charter!! The boat ride is only ~ 10-15 minutes, so it isn't long before you are in the water. They give you back your gear after they rinse it off for you.

Patrice Heller was our divemaster, and she was great!! She gave us the option of tagging along with her, which we did, while she used her slate to name off the flora and fauna.

We have dove on the big cattle boats in the past [Cozumel], and this was GREAT to be with such a small group!
