Very friendly guides. Free pick-up from our resort (Deco Stop Lodge). Before all dives we got a detailed briefing. They guided us to different decks, cargo tanks and the “Lady“. Through very narrow tunnels we found a lot of stuff in the wreck. Perfect dives!

This was our teenage sons first dive after receiving his Padi qualifications . He was given his own guide Claude and dived the Coolidge and Million Dollar Point . He was very well taken care of and we felt safe at all times. The added bonus was chatting with Allan and hearing the history of the diving industry and tourism... More

We came to Santo mainly for the diving and was not disappointed with doing a dozen dives with Allan Power! From the minute we arrived we were greeted with such friendly and professional service, feeling right at home with everybody. Rightly so, Allan is known as "Mr President" when it comes to the Coolidge and no one knows the world... More

If you choose to dive with Allan Power Dive, you will not be disappointed. The Dive Guides are very experienced and knowledgeable. Neither my husband or myself are very experienced divers so probably required a bit more patience than younger divers. Not once were we made to feel a nuisance or a bother. A very professional, but relaxed outfit who... More

After having dived with with another dive company the previous day my partner and I were quite impressed with the quality of service and gear provided by Alan and his staff. The briefings were very in depth and on all 7 dives it was just the 2 of us with our own guide, doing the dives we wanted. Contrary to... More

Recently finished my PADI so I am very much a novice in the diving world, but perhaps that may help with an unbiased review. My PADI was finished with instructor Lionel and always felt safe and confident in the water. Despite other reviews, a buddy check and talk on the dive always took place beforehand and everything explained well. My... More

Truly incredible, and props to Allan Power for putting it all together. The night dive on the Coolidge was one of the best experiences I've ever had.
