2 tank diving antigua

The boat needs a bit of sand in the painted floor otherwise the carpet at the back is non slip, the dive ladder also needs a briefing on - as soon as you get your weight on it it is working great, just getting a hand to it then going for your fins is the mistake I made first time !

The quality of the leading was very good (Paul and Connie great hospitality humor - Paul dives with a bow tie !) finding and explaining the fish life past what I normally am used to. They are also committed to safety first and fun second.

Some small things missing for me- free or available coffee in the shop (its a decent sized hut on a beautiful beach) Also I didn't get to shower off before my lift back to resort.

NOTE: This appears to be the only dive operator offering decent value transfers from Resort. I was staying at the halcyon rex in dickenson beach and ot cost 20 USD return regular cab is over 50 ! Other dive operators use regular taxis and they told me for insurance purposes they would not pick us up, that can't be right ?

Total enjoyment

The team are experienced friendly and all demonstrate a high level of safe practice. Jolly dive may not be the slickest operators in the Carribean / Atlantic but from my experience "slick" usually means impersonal.
If you want to be treated like a true dive "buddy" then get yourself down to Jolly Harbour and meet the Jolly Dive team. By the end of my stay they had me feeling like I "was" one of the team. :-)

As for cost, their charges are very reasonable given the time and effort they will go to to get everyone down to the Dive Shop from anywhere on the island. I had my personal transport to and from the dive Shop driven by two people Sonya and Paul (Both of whom demonstrated ultra safe driving at all times, and believe me I know what I am talking about!! http://aditraining123.co.uk That's me by the way!!! Plug! Plug!! :-)

Overall a great dive holiday spent with some great people in a great part of the world.

Well recommended!!!
