We had a group of resort course divers who were very nervous as well as an experienced diver. Henry and and all of his team were amazing. They were supportive and knowledgeable. It was a fantastic experience.

We're staying at Divi, was it difficult to arrange transport to their office? Do they have good suits and fins available or are we best off brand noting our own? We're bringing masks/regs/BCs already, trying to optimize packing. Any recent divers have info on water temperatures?
