Comments Aqua TCI is owner operated by Stephanie and Bill and they pull out all the stops to make sure diving with them is a treat. Unlike other operators on the Island their boat is relatively small, taking out just 8 divers with one of them as underwater guide. They'll take another two divers with a private guide but that didn't happen when we were there. They did their best to find a range of different sites the 5 days we dove with them and the walls were great diving allowing our party of mixed levels (OWSI, advanced and open) to all enjoy diving within various depth limits. Our daughter needed rental equipment and theirs was top notch, with quality gear that fit and really nice long 3mm wetsuits. We left early so we were the first to all the sites, we never saw any other divers under the water and since they don't do afternoon dives they were never in a rush allowing those with air to extend each dive past an hour.
