Not restricted but best to follow Dive Master.  Lack of experience in the
area and no knowledge of reef location made it wise to lean from those who

Best to be self-contained but assistance available if needed.  Visability
limited compared to Carribean but camera a must.  Lion Fish were abundant
as well as enough variety to keep me clicking.

Would bring my own gear instead of renting next time.  Took a little
getting used to the "European" metric gauges but no problems. 
Drift dives were quite different from what I am used to.  Reef is far from
shore.  GPS was needed to find exact location.  We rode out in a Zodiac
which can be bumpy if the sea is choppy.  Reef was deeper than I'm used to
in most Carribean destinations.  I usually like to do a shallow
"check-out" dive as my first outing but we went to almost 40
meters every dive as the norm.  Wandered the reef until one of us hit 50
bar. Headed for the top of the reef and finished in about 20 meters until
it was time for our safety stop.  Went into Deco once but had plenty of air
to work my way out of it without problems.   Fun dives and lots of new and
different fish life.  Would do it again and will if I have a chance!  Dive
operator very capable, friendly and professional.  Highly recommended if
you like agressive but fun diving.  Advanced level recommended.
