We had three divers off Royal Caribbean. They were prompt and very friendly. Took us to dive the twin tetons and it was amazing. Very good guides in the water. Would definitely us them again.

Papa Smurf and Curtis were fantastic. Their knowledge and guidance made us feel very comfortable with our dives. They were both eager to help us locate and identify the marine life on our dives. The water was so clear, this was a great dive trip!
