Comments Diving with Larry is just old fashion fun. The boat ride itself is like an adventure ride at a theme park and the diving was simply wonderful - lots of large turtles, one eagle ray after another, the largest southern sting rays we've ever seen and lots of healthy large green moray eels. Non-stop action.

You need to experience Larry's wonderful dive boat and diving system. At first it appears to be lots of rules, sort of military, but once you get going the logic of the rules is evident and following them is easy and enhances your enjoyment. Larry's zodiac is a marvel of scuba design.

Backroll exit and easy ladder to climb back into the boat. A great system for diving the Atlantic side reefs where the day we dove there were 4 to 5 foot swells and some mild chop. Larry's is expensive and worth it!
