Comments Dive shop catered to beginner to advanced divers, they have nitrox, shallow dives and deep diving. Boats were large and spacious, had "fins on" ladders. Safety breifing given on every trip, roll call while boat docked and after each dive. Crew was fun, knew your name, and liked to have fun while being safe. Reefs were in good shape with abundant sea life. Admiral Brenda took care of all hotel reservations and our diving itinerary. Cost of dives went down with the number of dives made. If you needed any extras, ex light, nitrox, they will keep a running total until you are done diving with them. Recommend night diving, Spiegal Grove and coral reef dives.
