Comments This trip was some time ago (I am posting this in February 2010), so I do not recall all the details. However my overall experience with Dive Grenada was excellent, I would recomend it to anyone.

This is a small dive operator. They have one boat, which probably would not accomodate more then 7-8 divers, plus 2 divemasters. There are always 2 divemasters on every dive trip, even if there is only 1 diver. Getting to the boat can be a little uncomfortable, as there is no dock, you enter the water from the beach and climb in to the boat, but the staff is very helpful with all the equipment. I made a total of 10 dives with Dive Grenada over 4 days, only repeated 1 site, and they asked if I was ok with it, it was the Sculpture Garden, which I had asked if it was possible to dive it again anyway!! They are careful not to take you to a site that is far beyond your experience. I was also very thankful, when I realized that I left my AOW certification at home, that they asked to see my dive log and allowed me to dive at this level based on my experience.

There were a few times that I was the only diver, and that did not stop us from diving, myself and 2 divemasters, it was basically like a private charter.

At the end of the day they would take care of rinsing all my equipment and storing it with theirs once dry.

I would like to get back to Grenada to dive more of their wrecks.
