You will not find a better and more genuine guy than Chris Davies! He's far more than the owner of OD. If you want to be fully taken care of, treated with genuine kindness, respect and the best customer service, look no further! Chris, cannot...More

No sorry, we aren't allowed to operate in those waters. Best place in Anguilla is Shoal Bay Scuba. Contact Matthew Billington, a good friend of mine and the owner. Hope this helps!
