Bad experiences on all fronts with them. And by that I mean by phone call, email, and in person. We've given them so many different times to give us mediocre customer service and they failed every time. My husband and I are pretty laid back....More

I had a great experience diving with Parker for two days. MDA does not allow single divers to join groups, rather you need to hire a guide so it's a private tour. At first I wondered if this was a way to gouge tourists but...More
