I did a 2 tank fun dive with this shop. Friendly people. Went with a small group (2 other divers and 1 divemaster) which was good. The boat was small and fast. Pricing is good. Would definitely visit again.

Very knowledgeable, experienced, and professional staff. I saw octopus, huge turtle, snakes, and all sorts of weird fish on my dive.
