Comments Best land-based dive trip we've had. Apart from American Airlines delaying our bags for the first day, it all went without a hitch. Reef Divers loaned us equipment for our first day that was great.

Diving was super, the condo was well built, clean, well maintained. The food was also very good. Overall, I don't have a single complaint.

Reef Divers may be at the top of my dive operator list now. They have clear processes that they religiously follow that are based on safety. Our dive masters were Marcus and Natalie. I'm not sure of all their DMs are that good, but these two are very hard working, quite accommodating, and excellent divers.

Tons of goliath grouper, many French Angels, couple of reef sharks, HUGE lobster, puffers, etc., etc., etc. THis diving is much better than Grand Cayman with the exception that their reef walls aren't as dramatic as Grand Cayman's. Lots more wildlife, though.

I understand that they bought Cobalt Coast in Grand Cayman from Arie. They'll put a dent in DiveTech unless DiveTech becomes more friendly/accommodating.
