The dives are fun. The workers are funny and nice. They are well experianced and well trained. They will put people's safety over everything else. I've dive twice and it has been some of the best dives I've ever have.

Hello, How would guests that plan to scuba dive arrange it? Does the resort have a dive shop associated?

Response from Ilja B | Property representative |
I've answered this question, but I see somehow it wasn't published: which resort will you be staying? You are now contacting The Scuba Shop, not a resort. Thank you, Ilja
