Comments Tony has been around for a long time now and has attracted a great staff. The captains and crew are born and raised in the business and are spot on every dive and pick-up, even with split groups. Groups are six to ten, in fast, comfortable, well appointed boats.

You can pick your dive and will not be herded back toward port until you are ready. You generally can dive to your full capability at recreational depths and moderately extended bottom times. Surface intervals are a group decision. Plenty of snacks on board. Food at the beach club or a private snorkel spot.

Photo divers are suported like pros. Beginners feel like experts when they have been diving with Tony for a few days. There is always a collegial atmosphere, all for one and one for all which makes it all more fun.

Check this one out. It is a good one

UW Photo Comments There are a couple of "thing finders" on the staff who can help you fill the holes in your collection. Sharks, rays, spotted eagle rays, beautiful Czm toad fish, some very cool small stuff, ie caves of silversides. Whale sharks and cenotes are great day trips.
