Comments My husband and I dove with Unexsco dive shop. We were on a cruise with Carnival on the Liberty ship. I booked the diving through [ link] who I called and were very nice. They even arranged for us to be picked up from the ship taken to the dive shop and returned after our diving. The dive shop was very organized and were pleasant to dive with. The diving was not very good since the coral really seem in bad shape. Not a lot of fish life and the water was cold for what we were use to. We probably would not dive there again in less we were only going to be there for a day. We would never take a week trip when there are so many better choices to dive. Booking the diving on our own instead of throught the cruise helped to keep us off the cattle boats and away from the crowds. If you want to dive at a couple of different places all on one trip the cruise was great just book all your diving on your own before you leave home.
