Comments Scuba Mau is not listed on the drop down menu and I do not understand why. They are an extremely well run shop with an excellent staff of experienced dive masters. I have been in the water since 1974 with more dives than I can count and this group is the best that I have dove with in all of those years. I have dove with a lot of good shops over the years while the only questionable ones had been in Aruba and Jamaica years ago. I highly recommend them to anyone who really wants to enjoy their diving without the cattle boat mentality of a lot operations, they only use six packs for their transportation to the dive sites. This can mean that an occasional dive trip may be canceled due to the harbor being closed but only occasionally. This is my second year with them while on my extended six week vacations and will be planning to dive with them again next year. I was here so long that I had all aspects of weather and water conditions and picked and choosed what days I would dive. The weather can be cranky during the winter months with an occasional El Norte coming in to make the sea quite rough and heavy rains.
