Comments Indigo Divers continue to offer the perfect mix of friendly & professional valet diving. Once you're used to diving from a small boat with no more than 6 guests you never want to go back to being herded about in a large group. Diving is never hurried nor crowded, and surface intervals are spent in enjoyable conversation over home made cookies & fruit and chilled soft drinks. Kitting up is simple & comfortable, sitting at the rear of the boat - followed by a giant stride entry; at the end of the dive you pass your fins up, climb the short ladder and sit while your BCD/tank are stowed safely.

The owners, Chris & Kate Alpers have built a strong brand, offer incredible service and enjoy a high level of repeat custom from their guests. Their instructor/divemasters (Stevie and Danny) are friendly, easy going and very good at spotting even the smallest of critters...They adapt well to divers' various competence levels - whether student/newly qualified divers or those with more experience, all guests are looked after appropriately.

This was my 6th visit and I'm already looking forward to next year's.
