I recommended this company to my niece and her fiance. When they did the booking over the internet for a scuba diving outing, they requested all equipment included to get the cost, when they got there they had to pay additional money for flippers, wet-suit, etc. They were also disappointed that the dive master was not with them at all...

Went recently for my second time with a large group of friends with the goal to go lobstering. First dive spot ends up with zero chance of lobster since someone was teaching a class for a student on the boat.

Took the family snorkeling for an afternoon and this place was the perfect spot. The crew was fantastic, and made the trip fun. If you are looking for a good day half-day trip while here, this is a great time. As for the snorkeling itself, a lot of the same fish- nothing too exciting. But for kids and newbies it's... More

Discovered Seaexperience as an add on to Bahia Mar complex and what a dynamic duo. What could be better then waking to a boat and a top notch crew to take one on a trip to h2o bliss.
