Customer reviews: 

"We found them very professional and well organised. The only thing that let them down was variability in the local dive instructors, some of whom were too keen to mess with the marine life (we gave this feedback directly to Eco Divers [Kima Bajo's dive trip provider at the time of this review])." - Liz Wickham, New Zealand ...
