Comments We are a group of 7 who booked with this shop after searching online. They had a cab waiting for us at the pier. Check-in at the shop was very simple, Samantha had all our info ready from the online communications. The guys took charge of our gear and hauled everything down to the boat and set it up for us.

We had a boat with a shade cover and 4 crew members. They sent 2 dm's into the water with us because one of us was making his very first ocean dive after getting certified in Wisconsin. The entire crew was so helpful and easy to understand. The boat ride was short and the scenery was amazing above.... then below -- OMG! So pretty and full of healthy life. You swim thru warm patches due to 7 active volcanoes on the island.

This is a place we are going to go back to for a 2 week stay in the next year or so! And we will dive with these guys again too!
