WHAT PEOPLE SAY About Blue Ocean Dive REsort

A great experience

A great experience from arrival to departure. Informative, proactive, clear and extremely professional. A special mention of Gary, his thorough, yet relaxed and friendly briefing and way he herded the cats (I mean divers) in our group. I’ll definitely be back. With my friends too.
