4 star rating: Recommended June 2015

I'm not terribly comfortable underwater, so this is well outside my comfort zone. The instructors explained everything both in and out of the pool and were very patient when it took me a little extra time to figure out how to maintain buoyancy. The reef dive was cool, but insanely crowded and not as bright and colorful as you hope for. The best part was actually the boat ride out to the reef riding through the mangroves and seeing the hotel zone from the water was just gorgeous, and I didn't get sick, which makes it way better. My mask didn't fit quite right, so I kept having to clear it, so if I want to dive again I'll consider buying my own mask.

Great class. I was disappointed with the reef dive, only because there wasn't much too see. Did the 2 dive day trip to Cozumel the following day which was remarkable!

4 star rating: Recommended May 2012

My boys enjoyed this very much. Only complaint I heard was that there were some of the other divers having difficulty so the boys didn't get as much diving time that they would have liked.
