Reviewed By DHO123 - Austin, Texas

This was my first time to Columbus Isle and diving with Seafari, but everything was great. The staff was friendly, bilingual, and helpful. One thing that was different from other dive shops I've been with was the extra $10 to dive with a guide. While this may seem a little unusual, I believe it's worth the expense as they are experts with each location and can point out things that I would certainly miss. I also appreciated that they didn't require me to pre-purchase a package of dives as I've had to with other operators.
While I only did two dives, both were excellent wall dives with plenty of sea life. The staff, boats, and equipment were excellent and I recommend you give them a try.

Dixon Hill Lighthouse

Climb to the top and see San Salvador's beautiful Caribbean countyside.

Reviewed By Island_Highlander - Largo, Florida

This was really interesting. You are able to walk right in, climb all the way up and walk around the outside upper walkway. Really windy up there. The view is really beautiful. What's really interesting though is to get a close up view of the lenses and how they rotate and the mechanisms involved.

My fiancé and I had a spending time going fishing with Captain Jimmy. We did some 'inshore trolling' and apparently caught a huge amount of jacks and barracudas. I'm not familiar with the names of fishes, so Captain Jimmy explained them to us. We were able to BBQ them for dinner. Super fresh, super yummy. Highly recommend this tour!
