We were told it was a little cramped, that might have been an
understatment. Wish I would have known the water temp before I left home,
would have brought a warmer wetsuit. My fault on that one.
  We have seen better corals in other places. that being said, we dove the
Gingerbread Grounds between Bimini and Freeport and thought it was some of
the heathiest reefs we have seen anywhere. Fish life was abundant and
bigger then the other places we have been. We did a shark feed, it was
great, lasting maybe 10 to 12 minutes before one of the sharks broke the
frozen chum in two and took off with it. One of the divers found a shark
tooth after the dive was over. We saw three lion Fish on the trip, they
killed one and would have killed all if the could have. I know they are bad
to have there, but I enjoyed seeing them. All in all it was a good trip,
the staff was good at their jobs and friendly. Food ranged from really
really good to so so. The staff caught and speared fish which we ate.
