The diving in most spots were average to good. The best spot Neptune's arm
was spectactular. Miles from any shore,over the side like a kid falling
thru the roof of the first "Toys R Us" and being told everything
is free. It was overwhelming, and I've been diving since 1955. You just
couldn't take it all in. Gray Reef sharks greeted us with lots of
curiousity as we decended. The site is a seris of reefs protruding up from
the bottom, almost like a sunken city. We decended around the buildings to
the city streets below, and followed the street to the corner and around
every corner a new suprise of color and coral, great variety of large and
small fishes, turtles, Nepoleans, schools of fish that took the shape of
huge fish to keep the many sharks at bay. Finished that dive with one
thought in mind, got to come back tomorrow, which we did. Much better dive
the second time, not so overhwhelming. It's a long way from anywhere but if
you get the chance, do it. Great people, great resort,food etc.
