Valente and Abdios are excellent divemasters, and with the boat captains at Pepe Scuba took great care of our group. Their boats are fast so we got to the dive sites of our choice quickly. 4 of our group completed their PADI open water certification under the watchful eye of instructor Abdios.

I dove with Pepe Scuba in early June; really nice guys, picked me up at a pier near my hotel, reasonable price, totally professional operation. I was very impressed on one dive in particular when we had an inexperienced family along with an older diver who was having weight problems.

My son (16) and I were recently certified open water divers. We asked Frank for an easy first dive, which he did and sent us with Volrath for an afternoon check-out dive to see where we were with diving skills, buoyancy and bottom time. Crazy currents ended our second dive but the rest of the dive days were spectacular. Valente... More
