Comments Prodivers was great to dive with. Once the owner and I talked and he realized my desire to concentrate on u/w photos he did his best to steer me to some good shots. Perhaps because of my experience, he also allowed me pretty much free rein to do as I wished on each of our dive sites. He did suggest to me a max. depth for each dive which I respected. I dove with Auston on 4 dives over a 2 day period and found him to be very professional.
The diving off of Nevis and ST. Kitts was enjoyable and nondemanding. There was light surface chop and no surge. The reefs at Brimstone Shallow and Monkey Shoal seemed healthy with a good variety of fish. We saw spotted moray, and nurse sharks at these locations.
At Garden Eel Reef we also saw a good size turtle.
I would recommend these reefs for diving if you are on the islands and would highly recommend Prodivers as a dive outfitter.
