Had a couple of great dives with Al this week. Very patient with my daughter who was doing a resort course along with another 15 year old girl. He took his time to explain and get them comfortable, including spending 30 mins in the shallow water. Friendly staff, stunning location and an owner (Al) that goes the extra mile. That... More

This is simply the best dive operation that I have had the pleasure to experience. After a great trip last year, we knew we had to return for the wall and more reef diving. As before, the experience exceeded my expectations. Daryl and Al have achieved the perfect balance of professionalism and fun. I am already planning the next trip...

Just returned from diving three days, six dives with Ocean Fox (January 2014). I can't tell you how wonderful this operation is. If you are diving on Eleuthera, this is the company to spend time with. (I'm a rescue certified diver with 200+ dives in multiple countries so am comparing this to other experiences. Second, my buddy this trip was... More

I dived with Al and his crew twice this year - once in January and again in December. I have been diving all over the world for over 25 years and can also attest that Ocean Fox is a first rate operation. I also want to note that Daryl led my most recent dives (and was my buddy on one... More

My wife and I dove with ocean fox in may of 2013 and we will never do it again.Daryl is an ignorant and totally incompetent dive master. The first day wasn't too bad except for the fact that he insisted that we were wearing too much weight and we needed to remove some. We have all our own gear(including weights)and... More

OceanFoxDiving, Owner at Ocean Fox Cotton Bay, responded to this review

This is Al the owner, this does not sound at all like Daryl and I am a little curious why you would wait more than five (5) months to write such a review. What days in May did you dive and from your review it appears it was just the two of you for two day, is that correct? Because... More

Went diving with Al (captain) & Darryl (divemaster) last week. The dive consisted of a wall dive followed by the "boiling hole" reef dive. Having been a diver for nearly 30 years and having dived all over the Caribbean and US, i can say that i was very pleasantly surprised at the professionalism, quality of equipment, and overall condition of...

We began our vacation in Eleuthera, Bahamas in the northern portion of the island. We dove with Ocean Fox two days (Thursday and Friday) to experience more of what the island has to offer. Ocean Fox is a very small operation who does not take credit cards so you are forced to bring lots of cash. Our first experience was... More

On our website, it is clearly stated that the minimum to run a trip is 4 divers, if there is not 4 divers our option is to not run the trip or if we do you pay the $169/diver for the two tank dive even if you have your own equipment, which was explained to you before the dive. On... More

I have given a great deal of consideration to this review, as I am never one to complain about diving. Lets face it, we all dive in order to relax and enjoy ourselves in the marine environment. My two dives with Ocean Fox were neither relaxing nor enjoyable. As an experienced diver, I tend to be pretty good with my... More
