The dive was great and the divemaster was awesome! He took great care to point out hidden treasures including a submerged cannon and hidden animals. The pickup from the pier could have had better instructions. The email said to meet at the pier, but actually the meeting place was a block up the street. The return to the ship from the dive site also took a longer than needed amount of time, but once we were in our guides' hands we were well taken care of. The dive entry and exit was rather treacherous due to the rough stone beachhead. A thick rubber walkway was extended but slick. I don't think there is much that can be done to improve that, but be cautious in your footing. The guides did help greatly transporting gear into the water, and dropping the tanks before exit. A positive experience dispite the small hiccups and highly recommended to seasoned divers. Worth the trip.
The Champagne Reef Dive & Snorkel Center offers a great dive in a beautiful location. We are certified but don't dive often but this was a very comfortable dive with lots of colorful corals, fish and sponges to look at. The bubbles are just added fun. Jefferson, our dive master, was super. We put complete trust in him and he did not disappoint. We got a bit tired toward the end and he helped us every step of the way. It was great to relax at the outdoor snack bar on a cliff overlooking the beautiful ocean and enjoy some local seafood. This was one of the prettiest reefs we have dove on and would come back again.
