These guys were amazing! Captain Dan and dive master JP were fantastic, the gear was in great shape and as they put it we only needed to show up "with towels" and they supplied everything else. Corsair was an easy deep dive the the sea cave was out of this world. Great dive and amazing dive outfit - thanks guys!

Our Divemaster Johnny was great, and our two dives were stellar. Do you love sea turtles? You're a monster if you don't. Go diving w/these folks and you'll swim with many.

Went on a dive early Monday morning and ran into swift current and rough waters. We ended up doing a drift dive passed a sunken aircraft carrier and it was great. We saw sharks, stingrays, barracuda, and so much more. Even with the current we were able to deck behind the aircraft carrier and enjoy close up many of the... More

2 excellent dives with Captain Pete and Elise with only 5 divers on board (including us!) so this was more personalized and proper attention can easily be provided at all times. We did the Corsair dive first, which is a deep one at 100ft but we totally felt safe at all times given how easy it was and how amazing... More

I'm totally drawing a blank on who our Captain was (sorry) but Him and the crew were very helpful. I did the Intermediate scuba diving and Johnny was our dive instructor. He did an excellent job. While scuba, he always checked up on us and made sure we were ok. They had snacks, water and even cut up a pineapple... More

We went diving with this crew 2 times during our one week vacation. Our sons, aged 12 and 16, were newly certified. Reef pirates paid great attention to every detail to ensure our dives were great fun and very safe. We saw giant sea turtles, eels, a timid shark, and beautiful reef fish. Everyone who helped us was highly experienced... More

I booked dives with Reef Pirates for Saturday afternoon (two shallow dives) and Sunday morning (deep/shallow) for my family and I this weekend. Captain Dan and his crew were awesome to dive with and very helpful. They were also very entertaining and personable. They not only gave us great history about where we were diving but they also told us... More

Loved the whole experience, very quick to respond via email, made booking very easy. With max 6 people on the boat it meant we were in the water very quickly. Great diving spots! Really enjoyed our morning. Just wish we were there longer to do more dives. Next time

Great experience getting my certification. Instructor Jonny, Elise and Lee were amazing with their training. Captain Pete and Dam, dive master Andy and Jp were all very nice and helpful, always looking out for everyone to make sure we are all having a great time. Make sure you tip them.
