Comments Had a good time diving with this operation over 4 days, in boats that were full some days and uncrowded on others. The operation is well run, has good crews and divemasters, and has a strong safety focus. Briefings seemed well-suited to the experience levels of divers. Reefs weren't spectacular, but I was pleasantly surprised by the large numbers of turtles, sharks, and groupers in the area, since they are among my favorites. Lots of divers were local repeat customers who seemed satisfied. I started diving on April 9 and appear to have caught the first reliably warm water and fairly good viz of the season, along with calm seas. Wouldn't hesitate to go back.
