Comments This is a follow up report from last year same time frame after the Labor Day Hoildays -the Hotel (Resort) rates drop greatly if trip is booked with Dive shop, Great deal! We have been diving with them for several years and will keep going back. The service at the shop and on the boats-- are great. One diver of our party broke a piece of gear (The first dive of the first day), they loaned him a replacement one--loaned!!! In the Keys you have Dive Shops on every corner, but not one like these guys. It's A Dive, Changes your tanks in between dives, drinks on board==Bottled Water!!! not out of the cooler. Again our party of diver enjoyed our trip. I recommmend them 100%. Great Dive breifing,some history of the site, what may be seen. Four dives on the Spegial Grove. Slight Current on surface, none of tower...Dive Safe.
