Comments PePe Scuba is an outstanding operation. They have excellent equipment to rent if needed. Their fees are low if not the lowest on the islad. Their boats are small, fast and well maintained. Their dive guides konw all of the reefs and will take you where you want to go. Their primary dive guide, Abdias, has incredible eyesight to find the things that he does. His joy in diving is evident by his ability to find the smallest critters, and the most hidden ones. The dive shop has two fast boats that will hold a max of 8-10 divers, but usually no more than 8. The tanks are full and are set up for your use by the dive guides. I cannot say enough about how good an operation this is to dive with. The staff at the shop are outstanding and are willing to work the best deal for your dive schedule. They will pick you up at any point along the coast, thus no ugly taxi charges to get to the dive op. Once you dive with Frank and the guys at PePe Scuba, you will return many times.
