Traveler Reviews

    Transportation was good, guides were excellent, the sites were average, the reef better than the museum because there were more fish, Bob

    This dive was outstanding minus 2 things:
    1 This was a 1-tank dive which is disappointing when you though you paid for a 2-tank dive, but I couldn't have done a 2nd dive considering point 2:
    2 It was quite windy and swells were 5-10 feet with a lot of sway underwater. I started to get slightly sea-sick while diving and then getting back on the boat with the waves I felt quite sea-sick until we got back to smooth water.

    I highly recommend this dive. The staff was great, the water was 84-86, we dove for 45min to 53 feet and saw 3 octopus, 2 crabs, all the normal reef fish, and bioluminescent plankton. If your prone to motion sickness you may want to take some Dramamine in advance.

    Visited MUSA and reef. Saw 2 turtles, barracuda, black spotted yellow sting ray, lobster, parrot fish and schools of yellow grunt. Hector and Axel guided us during the dives and made sure we were safe. Enjoyed this excursion.
