Great experince Diving with Kellys water sports
-I went to montego bay just for the weekend for some diving and the sun (im from canada). I dove with kellys water sports on sunday Jan 29th, 2 dives. Cost was 100$ for the 2 dives and 20$ for equipment rental (BCD,Fins,Regulator,tank).
-They are located inside harmony beach park, a fence and gate is around the park with one main entrance. Kellys watersports is at the north end of the park, along the end of the beach. I stopped by here the afternoon before to make sure i knew the location (google maps had incorrect location, i edited it), and kelly himself was who i ran into sitting on balcony outside the shop.
-I returned the next morning at 745am, for 8 am departure. Signed dive forms, gave open water card, got fins, and put on wet suit. When ready, we walked out in the water to the boat. There was 1 other open water diver, and 3 advanced divers, plus 2 dive masters, and 1 boat captain.
-We dove across the bay, where the reef meets the ocean. 5-10 min boat ride, water didnt seem rough. I was paired with the other open water diver and a dive master, and the other 3 went with the other dive master. The 2 groups went seperate ways but met up before we surfaced. The second dive we went as one big group.
-There was not tones of fish, we did see some colorful ones (blue and red and yellows), there was some big crabs, we saw 1 barracuda, and many lion fish. There was lots of plant life on the reef, but not very colorful, but some interesting corals. Some crab fishing cages too.
-They asked us if we were ok with them hunting lion fish, they mentioned they were poisonous, as i know, so i though it was for our protection. But i looked more into it later and was reminded that they are a invasive species and that hunting them helps protect the native life. I wish they had mentioned that.
-I did get sea sick 2 times during the trip, but i am still new to boats and diving, and I think I am overly sensitive to the boats movements, i am learning, and future dives i will take sea sick pills. No one else had a problem with the boat.
-The 2 dive masters were great, Risshan (i am 100% sure i spelt it wrong) was my instructor and the hunter, and Che (again probilly wrong spelling) was the other, she was very friendly and chatty which was great. They set up all our gear before the dives, and watched us under water.
Overall, a great dive experience for the day, i would definatly return and dive with them again or get some more certification.
