Comments As a 61 year old PADI Master Diver I've done a lot of diving and these folks were among my top three of the absolute best. The Blue Waters Inn is managed by a Canadian and the site is a must stay in Speyside. The Dive manager is a wonderful lady that we all loved for taking care of our group from Sport Diver Magazine Manta's and Full Moon tour. The boat crews and dive team were much better than Tobago Dive Experience (though they were ok). Come to Speyside to see a truly abundant quantity of rich marine life, but be in good shape and be an experienced diver as the currents and surge are challenging. The reward of a great diving experience is worth the time and expense. The previously reports are no longer valid (at least for this northern end of the island).
