Nothing special.  Rinse tank on board, small dry area for all uses, not
just for camaras.  The crew did handle photo equipment with care.

Dive Dive Dive had only a few Undercurrent write ups but their web site was
informative and their responses to emails was prompt and thurough.  So we
decided to give them a try.  They pick up at the airport and all of the
hotels on Nassau.  They also offer grocery transportation.  Their onsite,
individual one bed room units are large, well decorated, and clean, with
Cable TV, air conditioning, king size bed, tile floors, spacious bathroom
(with a tub), and one of the best furnished kitchenettes that we have
encountered in all of our travels.  Ask in advance for the one next to the
canal.  It has the best view through the sliding glass door and you are
right next to the patio where they serve fresh baked bread, tea and coffee
each morning for their guests.  The dive operation is right next door with
the dive boat conveniently at the canals edge for easy entry and exits,
rinse tank and drying facilities are located close by.  The whole facility
is fenced except for that bordering the canal and they have at least 4
friendly dogs in residence who keep things safe.  The operation has been
there for a while and it shows wear but not to the point of being run down.
 The dive boat is large with marine head, seating for divers is along both
sides with ample storage under, aluminum 80s conveniently behind the
seats, room for 14-16 divers, and a dive platform for giant stride entry,
and easy exit  aluminum ladders.  There is a boat captain on board at all
times and a DM on all dives and they both assist with gear handling. 
Safety gear and DAN oxygen was present as was radio.  The diving was good
and varied.  We dove where shark feeds are routinely done and were visited
by at least 3 large Caribbean Reef Sharks who came to see if there was any
food, which there wasnt.  So they left.  The School house, a great dive,
was shallow, 30 max, had the most life and lots small critters.  We also
dove four wrecks that had various stages of encrustment depending on their
length of time underwater.  An option that we were unaware of when we
booked was that if the boat was going out for afternoon dives and there was
space available, the guests could dive for free if they were on a 2 tank
morning dive package.  This was a very pleasant surprise, which made it
possible to do 4 dives per day if you wanted.   On the down side: There is
so much algae on the coral, except where there is some current, that it was
somewhat disappointing.  
An update:  Since beginning this write up we received an email from one of
the DMs who says that staff has changed at Dive Dive Dive but in calling
the 1800-368-3483 reservations number they say that the service will be the
same as before.  The operation is for sale howervr.  Staying there was a
good value and convenient but best to check it out further before laying
out the cash.
