We were a group of six Seattle area divers/photographers who dove with
UNEXSO and Caribbean Divers. We had an outstanding time with both

Caribbean is more laid back and inexpensive. The boat is showing some use,
but was fine. We made 2-4 diver per day with them. Many sharks (nurse and
reef), barracuda, rock groupers, tropicals, etc. Very nice wreck diving.
Coral is in good shape, but not as abundant as areas like Key Largo.

Bell Channel Inn was a wonderful surprise. Rooms are quite large, bit
dated, but very comfortable. Food was outstanding and very inexpensive.
Staff was great and very helpful: discounts for UNEXSO dives.

If you are in this area, be sure to do the UNEXSO dolphin dive, and shark
feed if you want close-up shark shots.

Great 10 day trip. Everyone wants to return next year.
