Comments This was our second trip with Ocean divers. Our group consisted of an instructor, divemaster and two O/W divers. All were treated with respect. The boat crew is very good in the briefings and in getting you in and out of the water. Ocean Divers schedules either a wreck and a reef dive or two shallow reef dives. They gave divers some choice in the reef dive sites. We enjoy the service and professionalism of Ocean Divers.

Ocean Divers runs two large boats and they can be filled to capacity. On our trip, South Beach Dive Center was running snorkling classes and the open water portion of classes. We were told these were tourists from Miami. In any case, even though the ocean was almost flat, we had many of the South Beach students hanging over the rails. Also, South Beach made no effort to instruct the students on boat edicate. You might want to avoid getting on the boat with the South Beach students, but I would still go with Ocean Divers.
