Comments Indigo Divers is a small operation that offered customized service from their own dock in West Bay. It is next to the public dock. It is owned and run by Chris & Kate Alpers (from Cleveland and England, respectively) and they, or their dive master Bec (from Tasmania, Australia) know their dive sites and at least two of them went out on every dive. Very nice comfortable boat. I liked that they offered two tank morning dives and two tank afternoon dives as well as night dives. For the lazy diver it was nice to spend the morning with my non-diving spouse and other family members and then do a two-tank afternoon dive.

This is a great small personalized operation. I did nine dives with them during the last week of December. All of them were on the west wall and all were great. The night dive was a shore dive from the Macabuca restaurant and dive shop near the Turtle Farm.
