The good: Uncrowded dive sites, diving your own profile, lots to see and
get excited about. Saw lots of Lionfish, juvenile and adult, saw many
nudibranches, giant clams, cuttlefish, octopus, shrimp, sharks, potato cod,
olive sea snakes, rays and more and more.   Extremely friendly, courteous
staff.  Very knowledgable dive master and good dive breifings. Diemi, the
main DI, was a 6-year veteran of the operation and easy-going. 
The bad:  The steam to Osprey Reef was a killer, had high seas, but if
you're going, not much can be done about that. Wear socks with rented fins,
got major blisters because I didn't.
Yes,would go again. (just send me the money! ha ha
Professional, friendly and helpful staff from check-in to check-out.
