Mention of any dive charter boat on these two pages is not an endorsement. I have added a few comments of my own if I thought the boat, skipper or service was particularly good or bad in my experience only.   Generally speaking if the service was bad I just cross them off the list.   

 If you would like an entry, a picture with your entry or your web address on this or the links page please send an e-mail to  If you want an entry on the links page as well I will expect one on your web site in return. 

If some of the info is out of date please let me know. Thanks. John
