Comments Vigilant Divers is all about personalised diving. Rob who owns and operates vigilant is all about making sure you get to do the diving you would like to do. Rob takes a maximum of 4 divers on his 30 ft boston whaler. He met us on the beach in a skiff and took us out to the boat. A very thorough boat and dive safety briefing. We went to a couple of wrecks and did some great diving. The wrecks were at 60-80 feet with lots to see including some huge lobsters and some stingrays on the sea bed. sharks included. Even though the weather was a bit rough (white caps) Rob worked out we were very experienced divers and made sure we got to get some great diving in.

It was a really nice change from going out on the cattle boat diving operations - that are crowded and rushed. Vigiliant divers is the opposite and a real breath of fresh air.
You get to really enjoy the days diving - rob dived with us on every dive over multiple days as his anguillian buddy looked after the boat. He took a lot of time to show us stuff we could have easily missed.

Rob gets booked up quite a bit - because he does provide a more personalised diving experience - so recommend booking early - before you get to Anguilla.
