Comments Good operation. Nice size boat for six divers on board. Boat was fast and clean. Divemaster, Brent, was very good. Captain Marvel helpful and considerate.

Corals not as bright as Tahiti or Bahamas, but our goal of warm water diving with our new certified kids was easily met. The currents were a little stronger than I expected. Enjoyed a brief current dive before returning to the boat. Fish were plentiful, good color and not the least bit shy.

I would recommend this operation for the beginning diver or for the expererienced divers wanting more of a challenge than is offered in larger boat operations.

Stayed at Ramada Inn. Nice hotel, right on marina with several good dive operations within walking distance
