Dolphin dive is a well-run, professional and friendly dive shop. Well before our arrival on the island, Adam efficiently responded to our questions and helped us plan our dive holiday. When a bad weather forecast was in sight before our arrival on the island, Adam...More

We dove 3 days with Dolphin Dive, and thoroughly enjoyed each dive. The sites visited were mostly on the leeward side of the island, due to choppy sea outside the east reef. All dive sites were 5-10 minutes from the shop, where we spent our...More

Great diving. Very professional guides and good gear. Dives are not crowded. There are several diving sites but it mostly depends on the weather and on the season. We saw turtles, nurses sharks and many different type of fishes.

In our opinion yes, it's only $30 more than paying for 2 local dives and offers something different. However it does need to be very calm to get there so is not accessible all year.

Troy, we have around 20 dive sites in total, but access to them is weather dependent so would have to be assessed at the time. We aim to avoid repeating dive sites for customers when possible.

We don't do snorkeling here at Dolphin Dive but there are a number of people that do offer snorkel trips on the island, or you can go from the beach, depending on conditions
