Comments We were really unlucky with our weather, only got to dive two days out of a planned five. Based on our four dives, there is enough here to want to return. We dove an interesting wreck and several nice reefs. Saw Eagle Rays (5-6) on both dives one day; huge turtles on both days.

We will definitely dive with Enrique again when we return. He's careful and extremely knowledgeable, and went out of his way for us: met us at the ferry to take our gear so we wouldn't have to cart it to the hotel and then to the pier; remembered sites I'd said we were interested in and took us there both days; took good care of our gear during the week; and drove us back to the hotel when we came to pick up the gear at the end. Plus he is a lot of fun! We felt a lot more like friends than clients.

The boat is small, does have a sun canopy. He can take six divers but prefers no more than four; we had one other diver with us each day. Both have been returning to dive with him for years.
