Comments I loved diving with this shop. It's a small little place, right by the historic Mala boat ramp. It's no 5 star area but it has character. The dive boat is a large zodiac that was designed for traveling between the 3 islands (or so I was told). Backward roll entry is always fun!

I will say, we were not given a lot of instruction while on the boat. Mostly about what we might see. However, our predive briefing was much quicker than that other group on board with less experienced divers. I guess they knew we were all experienced and didn't feel the need to go over every little thing.

Lunch was a huge Boar's Head sandwich from Safeway. So much better than crackers that seem to be the norm these days. They also gave everyone their own water bottle to keep. I brought my own so left it but it was a nice gesture. Environmentally sound shop.

The dive site had a lot of coral, juvenile fish, caves, and swim-thru. The cathedral was much smaller than I thought it would be but still very neat. The "shot gun" exit was entertaining also. I really enjoyed the variety and I plan on diving with them again.

Frogfish, octopus, turtles, viper moray eel were the highlights.
