New Wave divers made it very easy for our group of four to plan a dive at the last minute. They rented us a boat and sent us with a private guide within one hour to the spot we wanted. The guide, Regina, was really awesome too. Great service and positive attitudes all around.

Everybody at the dive shop were... More
