Comments We were very happy that we chose Indigo Divers. We had both experienced and inexperienced divers in our group and they made it a great trip for everyone. Indigo Divers went so out of their way to make our trip fun, I decided to list out our daily experience.
The night before our dive I realized that I had misplaced my DIN-to-Yoke Adaptor and needed to rent a regulator. I called Chris and he had it waiting for me in the morning.

Day One: Kate picked us up as scheduled. She was warm and inviting from the start. For the dive Chris gave the briefing and we were in the water. Once on the surface, we were treated to towels, brownies and banana bread during the quick trip to the second dive site. It was a little rough and I got seasick during our surface interval. Kate was right there, however, with some ginger ale and words of encouragement. After getting back in the water, I felt much better and enjoyed the second dive.

Day Two: We had our two tanks in the morning and chartered the boat for the afternoon. The morning dives were on the North end of the island which was a short boat ride and we were in the water. Kate was amazing at finding all of the little critters that my wife loves. On the deeper dive, both Chris and Kate got in the water which allowed those with extra air to enjoy some extra bottom time. For our charter we had some snorkelers and 2 children that were staying on the boat. Chris and Kate were very accommodating, allowing us to bring our children; it really made for a great afternoon. Kate took us on an awesome tour around the reefs of Stingray City. She brought along her UW camera and got some great shots of the group. About 30 minutes after Kate dropped us back at our house she returned with the gear I had inadvertently left on the dock.

Day Three: Kate picked us up in the morning with a CD of the pictures from our Stingray City dive. We moved to the South Side of the island today due to weather. This was our first time on this side of the island. The dives were more shallow, allowing for some long bottom times. That night we sent Kate an email asking about the picture CD we left in the van. The next morning she had it waiting on our door.

We had a great experience with Indigo Divers and look forward to diving with them in the future. The six-diver limit was a welcomed change from some of the "cattle boats" we have been on in the past. You can converse with everyone on the boat and not feel like you're ignoring anyone. Kate and Chris of Indigo Divers are a great team and a pleasure to dive with. They pay attention to the details and take great care of their customers.
