I completed several courses while doing a divemaster internship at Ko Lipe Diving in 2014/2015.
The shop is well set up, the boats were great and all of the instructors I met while there were professional and experienced. Ko Lipe Diving was operating 2 boats and a long tail, they have classrooms and all of the equipment needed to have a fantastic diving holiday.
Superb all around diving experience! Great dive sites, very attentive to our needs, well-maintained equipment, small number of divers. We had a last minute request for our daughter to complete her PADI Advanced certification while diving with Aqua TCI and Stephanie graciously accommodated us. Her instruction was very hands-on and thorough. My husband and I have been diving around the world since the late 70s/early 80s and our diving with Aqua TCI was among the best - highly recommended!
Good, reliable and safe material (bottles, boats, octopus, stabs)
Base is nice, clean, secured and easy to access.
Instructoors are qualified, serious, and friendly.
Dive sites are interresting and choosen in function of the wheather.
Prices are OK
We dove with Aqua TCI and my husband and I couldn't be happier that we did. Bill and Stephanie are terrific and took excellent care of us. We were spoiled with the nice spread of snacks during our surface interval, them picking us up from our hotel so we didn't have to rent a car and them rinsing and storing our gear for the next day. I would definitely recommend the 3 tank dive if you can, it was an amazing day. We really enjoyed our experience and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to anyone.
We just came back from our honeymoon where we had the chance to stay at Scuba Spa for a week. We really loved it.
Diving was great and Moosa and Moto did amazing brifings on the dives so that we felt very safe. Staff in general was very attentive and friendly. The food is served in buffet style - and they did a great Job.
If you don't feel like doing 3 dives per day it is possible to exchange dives for Spa Treatments - what I find a really nice idea. We did go diving every time and for our honeymoon three dives per day were enough for us - but 3 dives are the Maximum, so I wouldn't recommend Scuba Spa for divers eager to do a least 4 dives a day.
The rooms are really spacious and clean.
Alltogether I can really recommend the Scuba Spa. We loved our week there!
I was on the Odyssey for a 7 day liveaboard in October 2013. Great trip, awesome boat, fantastic crew, amazing food and unbelievable wreck diving.
I completed my nitrox cert while on the Odyssey, and met some great people.
What a great time diving with Bill and Steph from Aqua TCI. We did 4 days of diving with one of the days being a three tank Safari. They are very knowledgeable and patient, constantly pointing out interesting things to see. We went diving with my two teenaged daughters, who are on their way to getting their junior advanced open water. Bill and Steph constantly gave them encouragement and pointers to improve their diving.
After the first dive of the day, we always had fruit, crisps ( chips for us Americans), and excellent banana bread that Steph made.
What is nice is that there are never more than 8 to 9 people on the boat. Everything is always personalized and the boat is back to the dock around 1:30, allowing the afternoon to be enjoyed, which is not always the case with most of the...
Simply put -- MOST EXCELLENT! During research/planning for recent trip, initially contacted Flamingo Divers. They were booked, but highly recommended AQUA TCI, very professional on their part. From my initial email contact with Stephanie, I experienced why Flamingo recommended Aqua TCI. Email responses were timely, and informative. Stephanie patiently worked with me to create a schedule for completing my open water referral while I was on Provo. After I completed my e-learning and pool requirements I shared my successes with Stephanie. In a reply, she asked if I had any challenges. I mentioned one in the email exchange. When she picked me up at the hotel, after the "hellos", she asked about my challenge (CESA). I was impressed with her attention to details.
Stephanie and Bill were gre...
Stephanie & Bill take at most 8 divers on their immaculate boat, and guide them with sure but gentle hand into the deep waters of West Caicos, the French Key, or the North-west point. Clock-work operation, top notch equipment and a personal touch make the trip unforgettable. Truly recommendable as one of the best diving experience on TCI. Professional, safe, funny and kind - we shall be back for more perfect diving with you guys!
My husband and I just got back from an amazing week of diving in Gozo, Malta. We spent the week finishing up our Master Scuba Diver specialities with Utina Diving College. Their service and expertise are top-notch with a strong emphasis on safety. We thoroughly enjoyed our time with them and were sad to leave. When we return to Gozo we will no doubt be giving them a ring.
Getting the ideal Dive Experience is a great feeling and few things compare the perfect dive. Having said that, everyone’s definition of a perfect dive greatly varies but one thing that would be useful to any diver is information.
