Comments This was an absolutely wonderful experience. I would recommend Mike and Steve any day. They both take time to make sure that every detail is covered and that everyone is as taken care of as possible. We spent two days diving with them. They provided a cooler full of cold drinks that had water, powerade, etc. Also between dives we had a wonderful deli sandwich that they had picked up fresh at the dock before we left in the morning. They had places on the front of the boat to keep things dry and a place to store the dive bags, etc.

Our equipment was set up and moved for us. They were very helpful at getting people on and off the boat. They showed us a wonderful variety of dive sites. Each dive site had so many varieties of fish, coral and sea life.

We saw garden eels, manta rays, a rare green lionfish, and many many other cool experiences.

Every effort was made to also encourage us to respect the reef. Both of them are very careful to do everything they can to encourage good stewardship of the area. I really got the idea that they respected and cared about the place they live and work.

It was wonderful easy going pace that was not rushed. Words do not do justice to the great job that they do.
