We arrived on a cruise ship and dove with Jolly Dive. Excellent diving on Grunts and Big John’s Cave. We saw turtles, sharks, lobsters and lots of fish. Excellent crew and we will dive with them on our next trip to the island

Absolutely awesome two-tank dive with Jolly Dive. Chrissy, Cornelia, and Marcus are extremely knowledgeable dive masters and both dive sites we explored were great.
