Enforced diving restrictions  
2 tank dives with lunch.  Dive boat back by afternoon.  No late, or night
diving; sites may be too remote, conditions unpredictable?  Dives max about
60 feet but last about 1 hour.  This seemed o.k. with everyone.  Some dives
had considerable current, low vis.  All dives were fascinating.

I was looking for a place to dive, not too hard to reach from S.A., after a
two week, inland African adventure with non-diver friends because I try to
dive every chance I get, even if it means tacking it on at the end of
another vacation. I have to say, getting to Vilankulos turned out to be not
so easy for this American but I can't say I regret it.  For one thing,
obtaining a Visa turned out to be a spendy, time consuming affair (you have
to get it in advance, or else risk being turned away at the border).  I
wouldn't consider this region a world class dive destination waiting to be
