Chris and his crew did an excellent job making us feel very cared for.  All
the crew was very knowledgeable about the area, and about the fishlife.  We
got our advanced open water certification and the two instructors we worked
with were terrific.  Our first night dive ever was great! Everyone was
helpful and patient.  The boat and equipment first rate, with the best in
safety precautions we've seen yet.  Boats easily accommodated the divers
(usually between 6 and 10) with at least one dive master for every 4
divers.  Sites were awesome, but visibility wasn't that good due to the
weather. We had a great time and highly recommend this dive operator.  As
for the hotel, the service was poor and the need for a shuttle from the
parking lot was a hassle. We cannot recommend it for the price (supposedly
a 5 star hotel). Find another place.
