Comments Great outfit! Christian picked me up in Trelawny each morning, and drove me to Runway Bay for the diving. Very friendly and courteous staff. Had lots of fun. Even did a little spear fishing for the lion fish. Stacy was very knowledgeable and skilled in diving. Kept us well within our safety limits for depth and time. Stacy knew where all the spots were to find critters and lion fish. Saw sea turtles, shrimp, arrow crab, Lobster, crab, large snapper, eel, and sea snake. The coral system is in very good condition. Very pretty and intact. Would definitely recommmend this outfit, and would definitely go again. Just a five minute boat ride to each of the divesites. Saw a boat wreck and a plane wreck on one of the dives. Marcia and David were very courteous and David was a great captain.
