I hadn't dove in 8 years and was way anxious. John did great going over basics. He really took care of me. Waited while I got comfortable in water. Dives were only 20 feet and fish and coral life were amazing. Great dive and company.

We had a great day of snorkeling with Melissa as our guide. Saw lots of wildlife/fish including a pair of sea turtles. Would definitely recommend this company. They were great about calling and confirming. Could not ask for a better time.
