Reviews

My trip to Little Cayman with Atlantic Edge Scuba was fantastic! The trip leaders, Terry and Debbie, were the best! They planned every last detail so that our group could relax, dive and just have fun! Terry and Debbie are extremely qualified dive instructors who have organized many scuba trips and their experience shows. They think of everything! They are so enthusiastic about diving and teaching others this incredible sport. I was impressed with their accessibility and eagerness to explain, teach, and demonstrate scuba diving skills to anyone who had a question or concern. They are pros, and it made me feel relaxed and comfortable that they were always looking out for their divers. Terry and Debbie are also fun, smart and entertaining. They have a talent for bringing people together. Whether it was for a group dinner or other social activity, Terry and Debbie provided great conversation and a lot of laughs. If you are considering a scuba trip, check out Atlantic Edge Scuba. They offer a variety of adventures with experienced, capable, fun trip leaders. You won't be disappointed!

This is my third trip with Atlantic Edge and all of them have been fantastic. If Terry and Debbie are organizing the trip, I'm in. They keep you well informed and you know what to expect for the trip. Once there, they are positive, fun and work to make sure all have a good time. They are a wealth of knowledge, and their love of diving is shared and infectious. Little Cayman Beach Resort is always a pleasure and Reef Divers make diving a great experience.

This is my 4th trip with Atlantic Edge, & I've come to learn that there are great trips in general, & there are great DIVE trips, & the AE trip to Bonaire is a fantastic example of both! With so many options for where & when to dive, Deb & Terry put a huge amount of effort into herding all 24 of us cats on the trip, & from my perspective it absolutely paid off. Bonaire & Buddy Dive Resort are a great place that caters to the needs of whatever a diver might want to do, whether that's getting up early to step into the water right onsite, or taking your rental truck to any of dozens of sites around the island at any other time of your choosing, the only things limiting you are your motivation & N2 limits. Fair warning though: some of the shore entries can be a bit challenging, so you'll want to be fit enough to carry your gear over some rough rocks through moderate surf to get in & out. However, once you are in, the conditions are excellent: warm, good visibility, gentle currents, & lots to see! If you need a break from diving, you could venture into town for an assortment of other distractions, but the food & hospitality at Buddy Dive was plenty to keep me happy with lively evenings eating & drinking with my fellow travelers. It may sound corny, but every time I travel with AE, I reunite with familiar faces & make new friends, & I will definitely be signing up for more.

This was a really great trip. Terry Wells and Debbie Goldstein did a great job organizing and getting all of our divers out every day. The only downside was for those who traveled on American and got stranded for an extra night in Bonaire due to mechanical difficulties with the plane.
By Stephen S for Scuba Dive in Bonaire on Dec 18, 2023
We had a great time - wonderful people, delicious food, & nice accommodations. Ciara put in a lot of work planning so everything went smoothly, & our guides from Arctic Adventures took great care of us once we got there. Although the weather cancelled our ocean dives, AA went the extra mile to ensure the rest of our visit to Iceland exceeded expectations - waterfalls, geysers, hot springs, glaciers, lava tunnels, the Northern Lights, diving the Silfra Fissure, & more were all accompanied by informative, entertaining, & humorous commentary as we toured the southwestern regions of the country. Each night, the Grandi hotel in Reykjavik served as our home base to explore the city & find uncountable places for delicious food of all types, with plenty more attractions of its own. This trip provided a unique experience for divers & an equally enjoyable time for the non-divers in our group. I would definitely do it again in a heartbeat.
