Every Wed am Cayena Beach Club members are invited to go for a morning cruise to an inlet where we can swim in warm shallow waters. The staff on board are great fun, play great music, offer rum beverages. We always have a good time, lots of laughs and get to know more people from our resort.

Everyone was friendly, professional, and made sure that we had a great time. They picked us up promptly from our resort each day and were well organized. Would... More

I've been diving 30yrs and found this place to be the worst place ever.. unfriendly staff with little or no customer service including the man running the place. Be careful they have hidden charges when taking excursion.

We deeply regret that you kept your threat to write a bad review in retaliation for not having lowered our prices, as was your demand. In the end we were glad that you did not dive with us, since you were so impolite to all the... More

I have been wanting to get my SCUBA certification for a while but never really had the opportunity. With a cold front moving in and a week off ahead I figured this was the perfect opportunity.
