Comments The good: A very accommodating, professional dive operation with great customer service!!! Respectful, knowledgeable, patient, friendly, fun loving but safety & eco-conscious boat and dive shop crew. Want to share their love of all things big and small--obvious and hidden. Go out of their way to help you find the critters you hope to see, as well as focus on your comfort and skill level. Full set-up & breakdown, as well as clean up-to-date rental gear. Yummy wraps, soup & cocoa mixes, cold drinks, snacks & Homemade walnut brownies.

The bad: not a single thing really!

Bring a love for very unusual small critters and really take the time to seek them out in nooks and crannies.. Not as many free swimming fish variations that you can't already see snorkeling here.

Leave your wetsuit home/ rent their heavy 5 mil full wetsuits. It can get chilly especially if you have a long dive profile and go on 2-tank dives.

Night manta ray dive-worth bringing a video camera if you've got the buoyancy control down.
