Comments first class dive operation. small groups we dove with 8 ppl total, dives were awesome. lots of sharks, stingrays, turtles, jacks and grouper. Approx 45 min to the sites. Mickey and Jayne are an awesome duo. we were picked up promptly on time in the am brought to the boat. All the gear was loaded and set up. never had to change my tank. Safety was the first priority, Dive briefings were always given. always had our guide and clearly visible at all times.. Must dive with a computer which is a plus. giant stride off the back, 2 lines for safety stop (hangbar as well) Light snacks were served with water and cookies. Diving was great. saw sharks on every dive, stingrays, turtles and lots of reef fish. There was a mild current heading back to the boat, but you were never really that far from the boat. they visibility was around 70' water temps were 84 very warm dove with just a bathing suit. Sharks were amazing and mickey/Jayne give you the option to purchase pics which is a huge plus for us. We could enjoy the dive and not have to worry about taking pics and missing all the action. very happy with the pictures. i would definatley return to dive with flamingo divers. If you visit TCI these are the people that you want to dive with. they cater to all. Before you even get into the water you already feel like you have known them forever. very fun and personable couple. would highly recommend diving with them. They made our trip awesome!
