Comments 5th time diving with Aldora and the operation keeps getting better and better. Oversize steel tanks are great for those of us who "hog" air but were a bit cumbersome for the ladies in our group.

My wife hadn't dived for well over 5 years and the dive masters on the first 2 days paid particular attention to helping her regain her skills and confidence and continued to coach her throughout the week. On most days the boat had only the 4 in our group... and never more than 6.. The crew and captain always accommodated our requests for particular dive sites even the longest trips to Maracaibo and Punta Sur-Sur for the Advanced Divers in our group.

On a couple of days we hit storms on the 2nd or 3rd dive...raining hard enough so that we couldn't see the shore. We all agreed to wait it out and the captain once again accommodated our wish and pulled in close to shore to wait out the storm. We still made the next dive(s) and all had a great memory to talk about over drinks that evening.

It's clear that from management to the boat crews the focus is on safety and making sure that every customer is happy with the dive experience.
