Comments This was the second time that I have dove with Oasis Divers. This time around, the weather was a little worse than I had expected, but the staff was attentive. We mostly dove with Mackey, who has eyes like a hawk. During an afternoon dive he was able to find an octopus that was about 3 feet long. We were slightly experienced divers, so we could dive a slughtly more aggressive profile.

Dale and the staff always do a fantastic job in taking care of their customers, and made sure that we had everything that we needed and wanted. This was the first time that I dove Nitrox, and Dale made sure that I had a proper mix.

While we didn't see large fish or whales, others did. One group dove with dolphins, while another group took a whale watch trip, and had the opportunity to swim with a mother and calf. All in all, a most relaxing dive trip.
