Leslie and David B.

Sausan, I just want to take a moment to tell you thanks for all your help and hard work salvaging our dive trip to Dunbar Rock in April. As you know, the trip was thrown into limbo with Steve's untimely passing (Great American Dive Company.) You stepped in, filled in all the missing pieces and have a done a great job keeping the group advised as to next steps as they come due.

I am sure that most, if not all the members of the dive group will be glad to use you and Maduro Dive with future trips! Thank you again!
~David G.

We had an incredible time on the Cocos Island Aggressor and celebrated my husband’s birthday and my 500th dive during the trip! We saw hammers, tigers, Galapagos, oceanic black tips, a couple of mantas (during my 500th dive), eagle and marble rays, and huge schools of fish including more jacks than I’ve ever seen schooling together at one time.

A big thank you to Deb for helping make our milestone events memorable!
~Amanda L.

Overall we had a great dive vacation. Thanks for the assistance!!
~Kevin & Carolyne M.

Maduro Dive,
I have arranged many diving groups with Maduro and I have been very pleased with their service. Sausan has always been the agent I have had the pleasure of working with. She does a great job. Recently I took a small group to Roatan and Sausan did a super job of getting me and my family into very convenient and excellent rooms. I was very thankful!
~Bill J.

On the week long liveaboard dive trip to Palau, aboard Palau Aggressor II. I'm not sure I can say anything bad about the trip, except it ended too soon. It was the best dive experience All of the dive sites were amazing. My flights were on time, without issue. Luggage even made it. Yayyyy!
It was an amazing trip, with great memories. Thank you Roxanne, for lining it all up. Looking forward to the next adventure.
~Matthew R.

This was the third trip that three buddies and I booked through Maduro Dive, working with Dive Travel Specialist Debra Nielsen. We had been to Bonaire twice and wanted to try somewhere else and Debra directed us to Roatan. We had such a glorious week of diving. We all look forward to next year's trip and working with Debra again.
~Jesse H.

Hi Roxanne,
We had a wonderful time in Scuba Club Cozumel again. We got Room 70 which we had before, and is one of our favorite.
All in all, we had a great time again. We are a happy! I hope you can help the people referred and get a new customer thru this. Thank you Roxanne for all you did for us to make this trip great again. We stay in touch. Thanks!
~Petra and Jim H.

We had a great trip and really enjoyed the resort. We appreciate all you did to help us set it up. I especially liked the freedom we had to hang out or do what we wanted. Overall, we had a great time and learned a lot. Can’t wait to go again.
~David C.

This is the second trip for my wife set up by Roxanne at Maduro Travel. The entire trip was perfect. We will be going back and will have Roxanne at Maduro Travel handle our trip again.
~Roger B.

Hi Debra and Maduro Team,
Our trip to Belize was fantastic! Ramon’s Village is a wonderful dive resort. The accommodations are very nice, the property is beautiful, the onsite restaurant has a great menu and the dive shop is a nicely run operation. Diving was outstanding!

Hi Sausan,
Thank you for your outstanding service! Have a great week!
~Brad R.

Maduro Dive Travel is always first choice for our dive adventures and this was our 9th dive trip. We booked this trip later than usual and were happy to find a new available room. We stayed 15 nights in new accommodations. We saw more of everything: turtles, spotted eagle ray, southern ray, squid, huge green moray eel and millions of fish. After all, it’s about the diving.
~Anita B.

Hi Sausan,
Well you certainly have a knack for making a great Monday! Thank you, this news makes me happy! Many Thank!
~Brad R.

Okay! You are wonderful, thank you so much! Gus says, he loves you. Haha! Hasta luego from paradise!
~Barbara and Gus S.

Thank you so much for doing that! You are a very professional travel agent and we appreciate you so much for taking care of our dive travel needs! Enjoy your day. Maybe our paths will cross sometime on a trip.
~Marketa H.

This was a great place to dive. Thanks to Sausan for all her help in organizing the trip.
~Aaron O.

Had a great two week trip to Fiji both resort's dive areas had their own vibe and special corals and creatures. Both Volivoli and Paradise Taveuni resorts were top notch. You might consider not diving a day to see the waterfalls and do a village visit on another top side day but we dove every day two tank and some house reef time.
~Robert F.

Had a great time. Sausan made it all very easy.
~Dave S.

Thank you Sausan. Wish I had been working with you for the last 7 years.
~Chadwick B.

Thank you so much for spending time with me yesterday to work out the best possible flights to get me from Phoenix to Cayman Brac and back without ridiculous waits or layovers. And then to work on getting my tickets booked today even though it’s your day off. That kind of service is not so common these days, I’m really looking forward to this dive trip and to having you help me put together future trips.
~Very sincerely, Thank You
Edina A.

Hi Shanon,
Thank you for following up, I again want to express my appreciation for your attentive customer service. It feels great and indeed made our journey less stressful and more enjoyable. Under your guidance I felt well-prepared for landing in a new place and getting into our holiday, the simple advice of filling out and paying our arrival taxes etc. was super great and sped us along nicely. Thank you again for being awesome.

Overall our trip was somewhere between fantastic and extremely fantastic. I don’t think there is anything more you could have done to make our trip more enjoyable. You did a wonderful job and we felt very well looked after.

I’ll look forward to booking another trip with you. Thank you again!
~Brian L.

Maduro dive travel made everything easy. Until next time. Thank you!
~Sandra P.

Hi Sausan,
Trip was awesome. Any ideas for next year? Thanks!

Sausan and Maduro crew were very easy to deal with and very quick with communication.
~Dwight T.

Hi Sausan,
We had a great week! A couple little speed bumps did not deter us from the fun we all had, everyone in the group is already looking forward to dive trip 2023.

Talk soon to discuss next year and where we’re heading.
~Norma C.

Hello Sausan,
Thank you for your help putting this group trip together.

~Janice M.

Dearest Sausan,
This was probably our best vacation ever! You are AWESOME and really know your job so well and know where to put your clients! You’re the BEST!
~Patricia G.

We made it to the resort! The place is nice. You’re the best!
~Patricia G.

I am a scuba instructor and technical diver, and have a family of 4 that dives and a 9-year-old daughter that loves the water. We have been on many dive vacations, this was our first trip to Roatan. It exceeded my expectations in practically every regard. The Maduro staff were heroes for us on this trip (Lori, Mike and Debra) - taking time to talk with me over the phone to give me a real sense of the place and how things work that I could not get from any advertisement or forum - they have detailed knowledge and experience and were spot on, thank you! We will definitely return.
~Darrin Y.

Hi Sausan,
The resort (accommodations, food, and all personnel) and dive operations were excellent.

I am not sure where in the Caribbean I will go in the future, but I might try a more eastern Caribbean/Atlantic island such as Saba (albeit one difficult to get to). I have not yet committed to the idea of a live aboard (mostly from concerns about being seasick). Perhaps, I should reconsider Baja? And, of course, planning a South Pacific trip in June to Sipidan Island off Sabah, Malaysia.

Thanks for all your help!
~Jim T.

Mike did a great job. Had a great week of diving.
~Thomas K.


You have EXCEPTIONAL patience! We appreciate what you do for us very much. Thanks you again!
~Robert T.

Hi Deb!
We are back home now 😭😭 and wanted to say a HUGE thanks again for suggesting East Bay Resort on South Caicos as an addition to our week aboard the Turks and Caicos Aggressor. The resort was super chill and beautiful. We had 12 great dives.
~Amanda and Dan L.

Due to the pandemic and my son living overseas, our trip had to be rescheduled, twice. So it was challenging to put and keep together over 2 years! Yet Roxanne at Maduro Dive/Travel made it a total breeze, zero surprises or hiccups, and at good prices. Wow! I wish all my travels were like that.
~George B.

Sausan at Maduro Travel/Maduro Dive has been my travel agent all these years and she is the best you will ever get. She takes the very best care of you and makes sure things are right.
~David P.

Thanks again Sausan for all your help in booking my June trip to Cayman Brac and for working with me to get through to the right site on American Airlines. I will recommend my friends to contact you for aquatic vactions!
~Dr. James H. T.

Hi Sausan,
We started our reservation with Roxanne and was out ill and couldn't assist us. Our airfare with American Airlines was set to expire. Luckily for us, Sausan came to our rescue.

The day I called you were extremely busy with your clients and getting reports out, but you took the time to listen to our problem and promised to look into our situation. I called you again the following day and you let me know that American Airlines was not working with you. Your advice to call the airlines directly and the suggestions you gave me as to what to say did the trick. We were able to salvage the airfare and use some of it for a trip to Florida and still have funds available until Mar. 2023.

Thank you, thank you for your kindness and assistance. You are truly and asset to Maduro Dive and I imagine a valuable employee.

~Thank You comes from all four of us,
Linda M.

This dive trip worked great!!! Thanks for all you do at all hours of the day. Travel would not be worth doing if it was not for you!!!
~Jimi M.

Thank you so much to our travel agent Sausan, and the entire Maduro Dive team, for putting together such a wonderful dive trip for our group of 18!! They were there for us every step of the way (even following up after we arrived back home) and made every aspect of our travels unbelievably smooth, especially in the midst of navigating all the new travel/health requirements. Thank you, Maduro, for all the work you put in for each and every one of us. Will be travelling with you again soon!!
~Carina H.
Diver's Supply Indy Group

Good Morning from a tired traveler! WOW are you good about the revised rate! Thank you for all your help.
~Joyce M.

Hi Erin,
Yes back home safely. Back from paradise! It was my second dive trip with Maduro. It will not be the last one, for sure. Thanks to you also Erin for the great service!
~Martine M.

Hey Debra,
Just wanted to extend a HUGE thank you for your help planning our first scuba diving vacation! Our family had an absolutely amazing time in Cozumel. The whole family is officially addicted to scuba diving and we can't wait to get to Bonaire! 🙂
~Amanda E.

My experience has been great. You actually found me a better deal. All good!
~Barbara B.

Erin, did a fine job! We were able to get another couple involved, she worked with both of us & we both booked a trip.
~David H.

All is well, I am and will always be a Maduro Dive, diver!
~Bob A.

Debra has been awesome. he will be working next week on finalizing everything.
~Frankie J. R.

A huge shout out to Maduro Dive-our flight home was cancelled at the last minute and they took care of extending our stay and car. Bonaire diving is seven stars on a five point scale!
~Gary J.

Hi Sausan,
Writing you from Miami airport after 5 days of diving in St. Croix. Thanks for your help! We're interested in the special in the Maduro Newsletter!

Hi Sausan,
Thank you thank you thank you!!! Bonaire was grand, the diving was gorgeous, people seemed healthy and happy to be seeing guests visit the island. We had a lovely time, thanks to you, and want to schedule again. It was a great trip. Thank you SO much!
~Bob and Linda P.

Hi Sausan,
Again I appreciate all of your efforts last September for the great trip to Captain Don's Bonaire. I know I was skittish/pain...You are the consummate professional and handled my whining, well like a pro.

Thank you for your help! Let's keep in contact.
~Brad R.

Hi Lori,
Hoping all is well. We had a super trip to Bonaire. The diving was awesome, the PADI course for the kids worked great and who knew there were so many great restaurants there? Plus we windsurfed on Lac Bay and want to go back to try the mountain biking.

We want to start thinking about where to dive next. Are there any dive resorts in Hawaii that you like?
~Scott S.

We had an excellent time on our vacation. Sausan with Maduro made booking very convenient and she was very responsive, not just with booking, but throughout our stay. This became especially important as Covid testing requirements changed just 24 hours before our trip and again during our stay; Sausan immediately kept us updated on the changes. Local testing company came to the hotel daily to perform the required Health Department and US return travel testing requirements.

Our room was great at check-in! Thank you for your help!!!
~Saber A.

Sausan, you are wonderful! Please thank the manager too at the resort, too, for her flexibility. You have been so helpful. Please stay sage.
~Anne K.

Hi Debra,
Well, we are sadly back home now. Just wanted you to know that everything was 100% awesome. We’d go on that trip again in a heartbeat. Thanks again, Debra! We seriously can’t even wait to get in the water when we head to Turks in May!!!
~Amanda & Dan L.

Hi Sausan,
Trip was great! The group is asking about next year's destination. Knowing the resorts that we have enjoyed, we would love a your help recommending out next Destination. Thanks for all your help!
~Joyce and Greg

Hi Debra,
We were delighted that you were able to help us actually book somewhere at such short notice and even more pleased that it was Captain Don’s. The apartment (Ocean View) was ideal both in comfort and location. When we return to Bonaire in the future, we’ll definitely contact you again and thank you so much for your help and organisational skills. We had a fantastic holiday. Kind regards!
~Alison R.

A big thank you to Sausan Shalah of Maduro for once again setting up an awesome dive trip! Thanks Sausan!!!
~Norma C.

Roxanne selected two great hotels on Bonaire, knowing we have one diver and one non-diver who loves her quiet beach reading under a palm tree. In our first post-COVID trip, she put together a great trip for us.
~Pat & Len N.

Hi Sausan,
I am most appreciative of all the great work that you do for me
~Jeff C.

Hi Sausan,
Just got back home. Thank you for all your help on this last trip although there were bumps in the road we got through everything.
~Roger L.

Hi Debra,
Overall, the trip was great. We are hoping to dive somewhere in January (around the middle of the month) and would love some suggestions on where to go that time of year. We will, mostly likely, be bringing a friend with us. Not sure of her skill level yet, but she's been diving for a while. Your input would be appreciated.

Thanks again for putting this together for us. As always, you guys are a great help!
~Susan W.

Just wanted you to know how much I appreciate all you do!! I would not even do travel groups if it was not for you!! THANK YOU!!!
~Jimi M., Divers’ Supply Indy

I just wanted to take a minute to thank you again for making our Bonaire dive trip happen. We had a wonderful time! Hopefully I’ll be in touch in a bit to help with the next dive adventure.

Dear Sausan,
Our vacation was fabulous! If not for my children and mother, I would have wanted to stay! Kudos to you lovely lady for always booking us an awesome trip. On the way home in Atlanta going through customs there were several people who missed their connections because of not leaving enough time but you gave us plenty!!!

Debra and Maduro Dive,
Hello! Just wanted you both to know by far one of my favorite vacations ever. Thank you both for continuing to check on the situation regarding Covid.
~Jana S.

Thank you. We enjoy working with you on all these trips.
~Robert T.

Hello Sausan,
We made it back from a great trip. You also managed to get us the best room in the house, so thank you.

We had a fantastic time in Cozumel. We dove everyday. Planning on going back around Sept. / October. Will contact you for sure. Any good deals keep me informed please.
~John G.

Hello Sausan,
With the links and information you sent I was prepared for travelling this trip. We saw other travelers in Miami that were not prepared with the Honduran Precheck and declaration.

We had a good time diving as always and we are glad we went. Hope my feedback will help with any future travelers. We definitely would go back in the future!

Again, thank you for all your help in getting through the requirements.
~Joyce M.

I believe when someone does an exceptional job they need to be commended for their hard work and commitment to their job, which directly reflects back to you and your business. I have been using Maduro Dive for many years and have had the pleasure to deal with Lori. I have done trips through Lori for just my wife and I or up to 12 people in a group. I know in your business that’s not a lot of people, but working with Lori always makes you feel like you and your group are the most important group in the world. Quick story, I booked, in January of 2020, a group of 8 divers to go to Bonaire in April of this year, deposits in everyone thrilled to go some of us for the first time, some have been several times. Then COVID hit and we were still hoping to go right up to 2 weeks ago and then things started to unravel. By now I have 9 divers and everyone is going into melt down. I called Lori and with her help, she salvaged our trip with a trip to Curacao, now we have 10 possibly 12 divers going. I had Lori working tirelessly for a week getting prices and places to stay trying to keep in the price range of Bonaire. Lori with out hesitation jumped right on it and got us booked at Dreams in Curacao in the price range we needed to be in. Lori also stepped upped when I asked her to do a zoom meeting with me and my group. Again without question Lori said lets do this. My group was thrilled, not just to meet Lori, whom I rave about, but because she also answered questions I would have had to have called several times to get the answers to. Lori is always upbeat and out going and is the reason I and my groups are staunch supports of Maduro Dive.

Thank you for all you do, I hope this year is better for us all, and thank you for hiring Lori!
~Jim R.

Thank you for welcome back home. It was great for the group to get in the water again.

I wanted to say how very impressed I've been with Lori and thus with Maduro Dive.

I reached out to her about two weeks ago with a rather vague request of wanting to go to a special place to reacquaint my wife and myself with diving (it's been a few years).  Lori was so wonderful, friendly and accommodating as we discussed alternatives and once we settled on Grand Turk, she took the time to assure my wife of the quality of the location and resort, and was very helpful in making the travel arrangements, even calling me on a Friday evening to remind me that the "hold" of the flight would expire the next day.

In this age of digital travel agents, it was a joy to work with Lori and I look forward to doing so again.
~Kevin M.

Maduro Travel and Sausan is the best. Thank you for a great trip and thanks Sausan for checking up on our group traveling back home into a different world than when we left it. God bless you all.
~Shelley E.

Hi Sausan,
The flight was very easy and fast. Anse Chastanet was truly lovely, and I’m so happy that we had a reason to try something new. TRULY a lovely resort; and many thanks to you for making it possible!!
~Nancy Y.

I want to thank you for all your assistance in helping to plan our trip to Bonaire. We had a great time. Thanks again for all your help.
~Bonnie E.

Hi Sausan,
Yes we made the trip back to Reno Safe and sound. Everything went well all the way. Everything was no doubt very chaotic the system was down.

We really do appreciate what you did for us to get us out of the country. You are the very best my dear excellent.
~David P.

Thanks so much for staying on top of this horrible life changing pandemic. I appreciate your following up and caring the ball as usual. You are the best, and of course that is what creates loyalty.
~Chuck, Ocean Sands Scuba

Hi Joe!
Fiji was wonderful! Lots of surprise including a bottle of champagne and a birthday cake! (Did you tell them it was my birthday?) Oh and our room with the private pool was the best we ever have had! Thank you again for helping us!
~Carolyn W.

Hey Lori,
Just got back from my first live aboard experience on the Caribbean Explorer II and I have to say it was an amazing trip. Most importantly, the diving was excellent!

Looking forward to another trip in the future!
~Doug S.

Hi Lori,
We had  phenomenal time with the resort and diving! Thank you again for all your help!
~Grace W., MSU Scuba Club, President

Hi Joe,
Our trip to Cocoview was great, thanks for your help setting it up. The resort worked great for us, the people were great, the food was good, the diving was nice and lots of it - we had over 24 hours underwater the week we were there.
~Jim M.

Hi Sausan,
Great trip to Grand Caymans. The hotel and staff were great.

Probably will call to set up a trip in October. Was a really good trip overall.
~John and Kaiju R.

Hi Debra,
We had the BEST time in Bonaire.

Your service was excellent and very much appreciated. I can understand completely why Maduro has such a good reputation as you certainly deserve high praise. I've already been on Trip Advisor with high marks for the resort.
>~Cindy Harris

"Joe" Ramirez at Maduro Dive helped us again and provided the best service anyone could ask for or except. Joe is very knowledgeable and focused on supporting the customer with the best care. I can't wait to work with him again.
~J. Hurtado


Trip was awesome thanks. Call me about the Israel trip.
~Robert Ruehlman

Thank you for such an amazing trip! It was everything and more! We will be back!
~Kara and Bob Turner

Hi Sausan,
Thank you fora ll your help with the trip, It was excellent. I have posed a bunch of pictures on my Facebook page which you can view. A very nice diving vacation. I'll be back. Thanks again!
~Stephen Roth

Our family of 6 had a wonderful vacation. The rooms were great and the service was terrific. The included meal plan was convenient. Diving was incredible. Many thanks to Sausan at Maduro Dive Travel for everything!
~A. Medford

Joe you did an excellent job it was a perfect trip!
~Michael Beard

Hi Debra,
Hope you are having a great holiday season! We loved the resort, very nice accommodations, delicious food and staff is super friendly. We are starting to think about our next trip and maybe get a small group together.

Thanks and Happy New Year to you!
~Natasha & Matt Porter

Love Maduro Travel and Rita. Will be back again!
~Kathy Gibson

Hi Joe,The resort was simply excellent. Great job. Thanks for your help with the reservations and working with our group.

Joe Ramirez from Maduro Dive assisted me with planning my dive vacation - and I don't think it could have been more perfect. "Never before have I had such a carefree and personalized dive itinerary on a trip.

Thank you, Joe, for making this such an easy trip to plan, coordinate and experience.
~Mike Finocchio

Good morning, Yehudi!

Everything went well with our group trip. The best complement which was expressed by everyone is that they would love to go back.

And then there is next year's trip to be discussed. Any other great specials that we should consider?

Life is GREAT!
~Kathy & Jim Jackson

Outstanding! The resort was beautiful, food delicious and the diving was extraordinary. Thanks so much to Debra Nielsen for this recommendation.
~ C. Manning

Hola Joe,
We were very pleased with Captain Don's. The room was spacious, comfortable, and had a wonderful view, which was very peaceful. We definitely will return!
~Sheila Leiss

Maduro did a great job of putting together just the right package for me. Bonaire si always just a bit more of a hassle to arrange due to truck rental piece but Maduro handled it all. They made it so much easier to just commit to the trip and let them put it all together. I am definitely using Maduro from here on out!
~Joe Wrona

Good morning, Yehudi!
Just wanted to let you know that everything went well on the trip. The diving was great. The resort was VERY nice and the food was most excellent. No problems with the flights or transfers.
Thanks! I know the airlines gave you a hard time and sometimes it was difficult getting responses from the resort but it all worked out well in the end. Life is GREAT!
~Kathy & Jim Jackson

Hi Debra,
Hope all is well with you. The Matangi Resort was fabulous and then some. Diving was awesome. Thanks so much for suggesting the resort.
We may want to dive Grand Cayman or one of the smaller islands late summer.
~Cindy Manning

Just a quick note to send a BIG THANKS, the Compass Point was worth every penny. My two girls enjoyed it as about the best I've seen.
~Dr. John Thomas

Hi Sausan,
Just wanted to say Thank You again, we had a great week! Everything went off without a hitch, the flights, the diving, the resort, the weather, it was all Perfect!
Thanks again for all your help. I'll take a couple weekend to "unwind" here and then start looking around for something for next year. Let me know if there are any specials that I should take a look at.
~Norma Carey

Hi Sausan,
Everything worked great for the flights down. The layover worked out perfect. Beautiful weather, great dives in the morning. Thanks for all you do for our group! You're the best!
~Norma Carey

Hi Roxanne,
Thanks for another perfectly organized trip for us to Bonaire. All arrangements were flawless--as usual. Room 2005 at Captain Don's is the perfect bungalow for us. Thanks for helping to make this another great trip!
~Bill Morris & Harry Parisi

Hi Roxanne,
Safely home from another great trip booked through you. Looking ahead to the next one. Thanks and have a great day!
~Keith Gill

Thank you so much for the great diving experience!
~Kathie S.

Also have to give a great big thanks to Lori at Maduro Travel. She made planning this trip tootally painless and gave me really great tips to make the most of my time there!
~Chris Bowser

Hi Rita,
Bonaire as awesome as always. We may come back in the spring, we'll see.
~Irina Z.

Hi Roxanne,
Just wanted to let you know how much I absolutely love this dive resort. Also, I met your client Lester from Arizona. You picked a great place for me. Thanks again!
~Kathie S.

Hi Lori,
The trip was OUTSTANDING! Many thanks for all your assistance!
~Tom M.

Must say, it was a pleasure dealing with Rita on setting up this trip from start to finish. Communication, prompt reposes to inquires and attention to detail was absolutely great. I can honestly say, zero issues from start to finish setting this trip up. In addition, when personal reasons of my own came up to modify everything that was already set, Rita went out of her way to ensure everything that I needed to change last minute (my issues, not Maduro issues) where addressed in a timely fashion and I couldn't be happier with the results, again not one issue with my last minute modifications, which frankly they didn't have to accommodate based on the timing of my request, but still handled all my last minute issues without fail. I am one truly happy customer and will use Maduro in the future for all my travel / diving needs. Again, a BIG thanks to setting up my vacation and the results were fantastic!!! Thank you again!!!
~Harold Normile

Trip went off without issues...vouchers, cabs, check-in/out, room we wanted, etc. We have about 1800 pics and 1500 videos. You were great in handling everything for us, especially when my grandson had to cancel. I recommended you already to a couple we dive with so hopefully some business your way.
~Harold Normile

Maduro Dive was awesome in the planning and Roxanne is the greatest. We have been using her as trip planner for 6 years now.
~William McDonnell

We just got back from a week in St. Lucia. We will keep this resort in mind for our future travels and would love to spend more time there again.
Keep us in mind for next year's booking and any specials.
~Ted Faust

We had a great trip! Thanks for all you do for our groups. They all really enjoy Bonaire!

Hi Rita,
Everyone in our group thoroughly enjoyed the trip. There were no complaints from any of the 14 of us!!!
Thanks again for all the coordination you did and Roger was great there too, the boat was perfect and so glad we spent the extra for it.
~John Woods

We had a great week in Bonaire! Thank you for your help in setting up the trip.
~Robert Tuten

Hi Joe,
I just wanted to drop a note to let you know that despite a rocky start, our dive vacation in Taveuni was great. 20-30 dolphins swam past the resort on morning at breakfast. Did you arrange all of that?
Thanks, Joe, for helping to arrange this trip and for being available when the chips were down.
~Patricia Staley

Hi Sausan,
Everything, staff, rooms, ground, food and especially the dive staff were wonderful. Thank you so much.
~Shelley Enger

We decided to go with Maduro because I was a little insecure about arranging travel half way around the world. I had a resort all picked out and Debra was able to give me an idea of other resorts on the island. Listening to what I prefer on vacation she gave me a suggestion that also saved me money. I followed it and was I glad. Upon returning from a wonderful vacation we missed a flight because of plane engine trouble and Fiji Air put us up in the the resort we originally were going to book with. Debra was soooooooo right in her recommendation for us. The other resort would have been fine but her recommendation was much better! Plus, you would think her job was done ... she booked us a wonderful vacation...but no. We contacted her not knowing how to go about getting back home from Fiji and she immediately booked us a new connecting flight to get us back home. When you are stranded in a remote area-this service is priceless!
Thank you,Debra!
~Susan Wasson

The trip was as expected; We plan to do another trip maybe next year and are thinking about the Aggressor options on the Red Sea in Egypt.
~Zo Orban

The real star is Roxanne of Maduro Travel. She is perfect again. No mistakes!
~Philip Clifton

Things went as expected. Thanks for getting us set up for yet another fantastic trip!
~Paul Dean

Hi Sausan,
I had a great time. Thanks for your help setting it up. That group was so fun to hang out with. Thanks again!
~Sean McGinnity

Hi Debra,
All went well at Buddy's. Six of us are considering a trip to Grand Cayman next. Can't wait to get your recommendations on which resort and packages to get for the group.
~Donis Horne

Hi Debra,
I hope you are well. Thank you for setting up another perfect dive vacation for us. Everything you arranged for us went very smoothly. Also, thank you for all the resort paperwork in advance. It is much nicer to fill it all out at home as opposed to the resort check in counter. We will be getting back in touch with you next Fall to schedule a 2020 Jan. / Feb. trip.
Again, thank you for another great trip.
~Phil and Katherine Pearson

The wife and I wanted a little get-a way dive trip. Lori at Maduro Fanta Sea set everything up in a few days and off we went. Thank you!
~Skip Lyons

Regarding Maduro, Rita Fitzpatrick was incredible!!! Extremely helpful with all my questions, accommodated every change request and responded immediately to my every inquiry. Thank Rita, I'll book with you every trip!
~Mitch Johnson

It was terrific. Room, weather, food. Cheers and tanks.
~Andrew Silver

Hi Sausan,
Just wanted to thank you for all your help in getting Dive Trip 2019 organized. As has been the case for the past 15 years, you are always very responsive to questions and inquiries and always keep us in the loop regarding updates or changes. We never experience any "surprises", as you make sure we know in advance what to expect. That's on of the things I love the most is the open, timely, up-front communication. In addition, I welcome your advice and recommendations, they are always on point!
I'm sure our trip come October will be another awesome time!
~Norma Carey

Hi Sausan,
Just wanted to take a few minutes to thank you for the many trips you arranged for me and my groups. You always make sure we're informed and work hard to get us the best deals. Most of my customers only get to enjoy one div vacation each year, so it's really important that things are done just right. Cozumel in November was absolutely awesome. I'm looking forward to working with you on our next adventures to Grand Cayman and then Bonaire after that, My customers, Greg and I all appreciate the great service you provide.
Here's to many more vacations! Thanks again!
~Joyce from Port Divers

We had a glorious dive vacation, although the water was a bit cooler in January than it is in late June and early July. We will surely book again! Thank you for everything.
~Lois Lukens

Great trip, appreciated your assistance!
~Chris Raspante

Debra Nielson was great. She always answered my questions. We had 15 people on the boat and things went flawlessly.
Thank you Debra!
~Amy Hagen

All the agents at Maduro Dive Fanta-Seas were amazing! Sausan Shalah was a miracle worker to pull it all together at the last minute, and give us an amazing family trip. We are forever fans of Maduro!
~Annie M.

Thank you for all your help with our trip! Everything turned out great and our family had a wonderful time in Bonaire. My kids think you are amazing to have pulled this all together for us for Christmas! And I agree!
Thank you for giving us a spectacular start to the New Year! We are forever fans of Maduro Dive Travel!!!
~Annie Medford

For many years now you have set us up for the perfect dive and beach vacation for us. We are so fortunate that one day years ago we found you on-line. You are our go-to gal and friend. Maduro Dive Fanta-Seas, you have a gem in Roxanne.

~Brian Lukes

Hi Joe,
We are back home for the last three weeks. I just wanted to give you a quick email and tell you that we had an awesome time in the Cayman Islands. All together, we had a wonderful time in both places and enjoyed the time a lot.
Thank you for your help with booking our trip. We really appreciate your assistance. I believe we will talk to you again, when we are planning our next dive trip.
Thank you very much, Joe.
