I did 4 dives with Jolly Dive and enjoyed each and every dive. I only get a chance to dive a couple of times a year so I am naturally safety conscious. Captain Paul and his crew were excellent with their safety checks, explanations and...More

Dive guides are all very knowledgeable and friendly. They are good at pointing out things underwater as they use dive slates to communicate what you are looking as well. You only have to set up your gear initially on your 1st tank and they transport...More

Jolly Dive staff are very professional and fun. Had great dives on all three day booked, even with rough seas. Dive shop is less than 5 minute walk down the beach from Jolly Beach Resort. Would definitely use them again. Hope to be back soon....More

Hi, Kathryn. What would you like to know about this attraction? Hi Paul and Team! I am here but staying in an Air BNB for my first couple of days. I am right across from the Sandals Resort. How do I get to you all? There is a bus that comes by here #50. Let me know! I want to dive tomorrow! K

I've never dived before, but really want to try. I am an excellent swimmer and not afraid of the sea in any way. But I don't want to spend my time learning only in a pool. I want to dive :-) Is this possible since I will only be there for 4 days. Also, can you please tell me the prices. I'm on a budget (who isn't LOL) and traveling alone. Many thanks!!

Intro dive with five new (and three very young) divers we were in the pool for an hour and on the reef for thirty minutes, thirty feet deep or so. Boat was nice, as were the people.
