Comments 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!
