Comments Anguilla is a beautiful Island with mostly extremely friendly and helpful people. The exception I found to this was Shoal Bay Divers, who as a group, were the most uncomminicative, least informative, least friendly and most disinterested bunch of "dive professionals" that I have ever had the misfortune to encounter.

While conditions were rough and diving on Anguilla during December may not be the best, I would have definitly tried some more dives had my experience with Shoal Bay Divers been different.
