    Talk about easy shore diving directly from the Carib Inns dock, or pier, whatever the mariners call them, this is perfect. Easy in and out, Unfortunately I had just gotten out the hospital and didn't get to use it as much as I had hoped....More

    Glad you liked the new ladder/platform. Hopefully next time you will get to use it more. It has been a great help to a lot of divers and I do appreciate your kind words. Bruce

    One stop shop for all dive needs, will even order items before you arrive. Staff are so helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. Able to accommodate your every dive need. Great location with own house reef.
