KimberlyAmen ... I was lucky enough to start diving with Jef (and the charming Roger Ironsides) in 1986, when they first set up shop at Romora Bay Club, and you cannot ask for a more thorough SCUBA team.

Now that Jef has developed such a cool crew at Harbour Island Marina, all kudos to Maxwell Higgs, Edgel Duncombe, Andy Leggett and team for such consistently excellent work.

Fig Tree News TeamThis note comes from Bret Sigillo of

"Having dove with Jef (correct spelling) and Andy now for the past seven or eight years, I can only say that they deserve all the accolades in the world. It's quite possibly the most efficient, friendly, go-the-extra-mile dive shop that I've ever had the pleasure of diving with, and both Jef and Andy are super gentlemen who make the one hour drive north to HI well worth the trip.

This diver has more than 500 dives from the cold waters off the Jersey coast to Guanaja in Honduras and Ocean Fox is definitely the cream of the crop!! Congratulations!!"
