We had a large group of us to do the 9pm night snorkel and it was AWESOME! Boat is large enough to put 15 people on it easily, drive at night is a really fun experience, and then the fun starts. The Manta's are huge!...More

We enjoyed two beautiful dives today, Dottie’s and Aquarium. The variety of tropical fish was amazing! The underwater topography was stunning, from peepholes through the coral to swimmable clefts. Octopus, Scorpionfish, and the elusive Frogfish were just some of the favorite finds.

Went on the night manta dive on 2/11 and it exceeded my expectations. Saw 7 mantas - 4 of them were very large. Josh and captain Nick looked after us and we found BID professional, safe and fun.
