The main dive master's and manager's of this shop, Kent and his wife, are
really amazing people.  They made each dive interesting and safe!

Best night dive of my life with Kent, lots of octopus, King Crab, and other
critters.  My LED dive light was attracting a huge amount of sea insects
that we led over to coral to see it feed on them, totally amazing.  

They did a refresher course for a friend of mine and instilled the safety
yet fun into her!

I would gladly go again and experience this laid back operation.  

The Blue Bahia REsort, is so nice and comfortable, it was hard to leave to
look at other parts of the island.  Kent and his staff arranged a few off
resort activities but generally we spent our days comfortably diving and
snorkling off the reef which is 100 yards from the resort.

The food at the Blue Bahia is reknown and I can say I didn't have anything
I didn't like.  The fish is first rate, the vegetables, fresh and the
included with our room breakfast was filling and tasty every day!
