Comments Our family had a fabulous experience with Indigo Divers, taking 7 dive trips over 10 days. Both Chris and Kate are exceptionally warm and friendly people. They were very supportive and helpful, which calmed the apprehension of some of our group. There were never more than 6 divers and there was often just our group of 4. The boat is extremely comfortable and fast, quickly getting us out to dive sites, almost all on the north side, which is very accessible in the summer. The entire process was very simple. We were picked up promptly each day at the appointed time. After our initial dive trip, they maintained our equipment on the boat. For each dive, we literally just had to sit at the edge, put on our fins and mask, and Chris helped slip our BC onto our back. Then, it was just a forward roll into the water. After dives, you take off your BC in the water, Chris hauls it up, and then you just climb the ladder back onto the boat. Both Chris and Kate help to manage the dives, typically with Chris leading, and Kate following and/or surveying the group and the water. They are both excellent at spotting and identifying unusual critters. They were always very helpful in the water when it was required. Kate is also a talented photographer/videographer and produced a beautiful DVD as a memento of one of our trips.

The diving itself was amazing! We mainly dove various areas of the north wall for our initial dive and then followed with a shallower dive on a reef. We did dive the Kittiwake, which was included as a second shallower dive. In addition to the usual beautiful corals, sponges, and reef fish, we were privileged to have the experience of seeing some enormous nurse sharks, multiple eagle rays, a hammerhead shark, and a manta ray. What a treat!!

In short, it was an exceptional experience in every way possible and we would (and will!) absolutely dive again with Kate and Chris. There was absolutely nothing negative about the experience and no surprises.
