Great experience. Staff professional and knowledgeable. Lucian was the guide I spent the most time with and he was amazing.he demonstrates a love and respect of the ocean.He attended to every detail including helping the children and anxious passengers. The entire trip was great. The staff at the dive shop help you with your gear and explain everything. They seem to like their job which is rare these days. I can't find enough words to describe what a once in a lifetime experience it was to have a sea lion look you in the eye or touch your leg everyone needs to book with this company. I dive/snorkel around the world. This company and its employees are the real deal. Thank you for a great experience !!
