Jennifer Wistrom
We were hesitant to board a superior diving vessel, as these diving trips are for 8 days, and wondered if it was comfortable enough for over a week! The minute we stepped foot aboard, these worries were put to rest! the crew was outstanding and very helpful. The diving lived up to our expectations. Overall we wouldnt change a thing, thank you Ricky!
Johanne Weiley
Our diving experience aboard Aqua was all that we were hoping for and more! From the staff, to the visit points, food, and the overall experience was superb! and we got a great deal. Make sure to ask for Angel. He was very responsive and answered the million questions we had. 🙂
