Just when you think it doesn't get any better, along comes Dive Port Royal who will lead you on a magical journey to the most pristine reefs you may ever see. In the company of good friends, we recently experienced the Wall to Wall Dive package offered by Dive Port Royal.

After being picked up at BJ's in Oakridge, we headed out to the first dive sight called Paradise Wall. My husband and I snorkeled while our friends dove and it was one of the most incredible snorkel experiences ever! Snorkeling above an abundance of coral heads and barrel sponges we were lucky enough to see a nurse shark swimming lazily in front of us and we were surrounded by schools of fish just going about their day-to-day business of life on the reef. The divers amongst us raved about their experience - and were already planning their next trip with Dive Port Royal during their dive interval. We anchored inside Port Royal Shores Bay where I went back in for another round of snorkeling while the divers in our group relaxed, hydrated and raved about their first dive.

The 2nd dive sight was at Port Royal Gorge. Once again, as snorkelers we were thrilled with the abundance of fish on the reef and the pristine coral and sponges..

We enjoyed a great lunch at Calabash Bight Resort where we sat around tables discussing our dive/snorkel experiences! We were returned to BJ's (our pick-up location) where we sat and listened to the Banditos (a local group of musicians who jam on Fridays), enjoyed a cold beverage and just chilled.

Leif and Kathy of Dive Port Royal are great hosts and provided us with fresh fruit and water during the dive interval. Kathy stayed onboard while Leif (who is a certified instructor and dive master) accompanied the divers.

The pristine nature of the reef system in/around Port Royal makes for an awe-inspiring experience - whether as a diver or a snorkeler. Treat yourself - you won't regret it!
