I stayed at the RIU hotel and was informed that the scuba dive was all inclusive with the hotel stay with a $10 pay for the scuba gear. Once I got to the dive center I was informed that it cost $118. Bait and switch. The only reason why I stayed at the RIU hotel was to scuba dive! Not good so I paid the price of $118. I found the e-mail stating that the dive was all inclusive as stated above. I was refunded $118 and apologized too, then 2 dives were free. I arrived the next day for the morning dive. Mike the manager told me Scubacaribe was not going to give the 2 dives for free. He said " Since you are the only diver today.... I can cancel the boat trip". He made excuses for example the e-mail states free tank and boat ride but that doesn't mean that there is oxygen in the tank! You have to pay for the air! SMH ... I tried to reason with him with the evidence of the e-mail. He made excuse after excuse to justify what was in plain black in white. "ALL INCLUSIVE except the scuba gear". So what to do??? Mike does not care about the customer and only cares about the bottom line. Please do not fall for the bait and switch. Dont waste your time to Scuba dive at Scubacaribe. There are better dive centers. Please do your homework or it will be a waste of your time.

Had a great dive with my sons 2 weeks ago. Diego Heaven was an amazing dive instructor. He made us feel safe, calm and fun to dive. If you dive in Riu Ocho Rios, look for the dive master Diego Heaven. Good luck with your dive. J. Duncan. Scotland. UK.
