We only dove for a day but could have easily spent one or two weeks in Paje diving with them. Staff were incredibly friendly and welcoming and there was good equipment to rent. Some of the best diving we've done in a while. We would definitely go back and recommend it.

We had a wonderful time at this center. I completed several PADI-courses here. Professional and friendly staff (Arnold Chard and others) makes diving with Buccaneers safe. Smart to bring seasickness pills for the boat dives.

There was an extra charge for this trip, as it's on the north end of the island. It was worth it! They arranged transport from our hotel (as it was not... More
