Great crew. Rafael and David love to dive and hunt for critters. They let
us dive our computers and sometimes that approached one and half hours.
Getting in and out was very easy. Daniel brings the tank to you and you
just back roll into the water. He also has you take the tank off in the
water and pulls it up. It is valet diving. There are large schools of fish
and small critters as well. We dove with sea lions and that was fun. When
the boat sees dolphins, whales or sharks it goes in for a close look. Boat
rides are about 45 minutes but comfrotable. There is shade, water and
snacks.
