Comments We have dived with them before and really liked the crew - David, Garreth and Serphin. Boat is spacious, and like the dive equipment, a bit long in the tooth but well-maintained.

Day started out rainy, but crew awaited an improvement and went to considerable lengths to find a location with good conditions. Crew very pleasant and dive briefings were very thorough. Dived Tunnel Reef which had fabulous soft corals on the wall, and then a shallow dive (10' - 25') at Hollywood Bowl which had an unusual number of Blue Parrot Fish.

A friendly operation that provides free at hotel pick-up anywhere on the island (which was a 30 minute trip from Paradise Island to their location near the airport).
