Comments Giles is the owner and takes boats out regularly. He is an excellent divemaster and goes out of his way to find critters, nursesharks, and anything else of interest. He is attentive to divers but not in the least overbearing. He is very knowledgeable about identifying underwater fish. He is very entertaining on the surface. He has an extremely capable divemaster, Blair, who takes out the boats when Giles is otherwise occupied. He is a retired expat from Canada with about 7000 dives under his belt. He is very sharp and gives one the feeling that if there were some kind of problem, he's the one you'd want to have around. Once you bring your equipment on board at the beginning of your dive vacation, you can leave it and forget it, except for your mask, snorkel, and fins. They have two boats, one a little bigger than the other and with more cover. Both are excellent, though. Cold water and fruit is available between dives. Nothing fancy. They try to go to a different dive site every time, and will accomodate special requests if you are familiar with the area. They try not to take more than eight divers on a boat, which we appreciate. We will definitely dive with them on our yearly dive trip to Grand Cayman.
