“Loved our stay at Tom Owen’s Island. The staff was amazing, and always appeared to enjoy their job. They provided many enjoyable things to do, like lion fish dissection, fish filleting, coconut eating, fishing, free diving, bon fires, live music, and more. We were never bored. Adrienne did a fabulous job at providing meals and snacks. Even the presentation was nice. We took the Advanced Open Water course, and learned way more than expected.  I very much enjoyed learning about the fish and coral and stuff. Went snorkeling around the island and had a great time. Loved the freedom to move about and do whatever felt right at the time, the freedom to roam and snorkel whenever I wanted, the food, and the people were all memorable. Most of all, however, I loved the dives. The one we took with Yogi was my favorite. He pointed out sharks, eels, turtles, and all sorts of life I’d never see if he didn’t reveal it. I learned that boat diving is far better than shore diving—at least for me, it was. “ Rowena Portch  August 2013
