We did a snorkelling tour to Pigeon Island with this company this week.
The snorkelling was fine and for the most part, the staff was friendly. However we had a very big issue with the safety of the boat ride to Pigeon Island. In order to park the boat on the sand, the driver accelerated to the shoreline and did not adequately warn us to brace for impact. As a result, we all went flying to the floor- one of us hit her face hard and the other has sprained her foot and has not been able to walk properly for the remainder of the holiday.
We spoke to the owners about the issue and we found then to be unhelpful, unsympathetic and did not take the risks we were warning them about seriously at all!
We could have been far worse injured and want to warn people that this may happen to them!!!

I think you have gone to the pigeon island in a different boat. Not i a boat operated by us.
We usually do not park boats in the manner you have proscribed. We have slow approach and do use a bellow to tow the boat to the shore. Try to correctly identify which boat operator you used. There are hundreds of boats.
How ever sorry about your bad experience, You would have selected the wrong operator for tow bucks.

Pigeon Island has a great variety of fish and coral. I saw a 5ft Black Tip Reef Shark among many other fish here. Loved the experience.
Thank you.

It was my first dive after 2 years and i felt,as a woman solo traveler, really safe and comfortable. I did the refresment First and Sashaa was really patience and explained everything again for me. When i was comfortable we went for the dive. I paid 50 dollars voor 2 dives. I really recommend this company!

The location on google maps is not correct anymore. They are just on the beach next to Angel diving.

I just did my PADI Open Water diving course with this place, and had a great experience. Sashaa, the lead instructor, is incredibly patient and clear with his instructions, and not only covered all the required skills but also gave some great diving tips to aid further improvement. All the staff are friendly and helpful, and the hotel they operate from is very convenient and well ran. The equipment is well looked after and plentiful, and the other dive master is also highly professional. After hearing some horror stories from fellow divers about other diving experiences with other companies in Trinco, I would strongly recommend this place to dive.
