Comments We had a great time with Connie and George, the owners and divemasters. They were extremely knowledgeable and personable (and a lot of fun). Their rates were reasonable and they were flexible in changes of schedule. It was obvious that they do this because they enjoy it and not because they see it as an income stream. The dives were very nice and they were very good at pointing out fish and corals. We highly recommend them.

Connie and George selected dive sites that had different varieties of coral and fish. It was obvious that we were being led by experienced and knowledgeable dive guides.

Their dive operation is small one boat (or maybe two but we saw only one) and their facilities are moderate just a small dive shop, a beach for launch of (you and the) boat. But this kind of personalized service and participation is what we liked.

They have the fundamentals i.e. a rinse tank. And they are very helpful we think George personally carried every tank, even though we tried to help.

We highly recommend this dive operation and we will do it again if circumstances allow.
