          One stop shop for all dive needs, will even order items before you arrive. Staff are so helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. Able to accommodate your every dive need. Great location with own house reef.

          The Divi ... right next door. I suggest you pack some ground coffee when you fly in. That way you can make a cup before diving the first day. If you don't have time to get to the store before arriving....its your best bet.
