A maximum of 130 feet was suggested, but one was able to use judgement.
Stan the divemaster was an absolute professional; there when you needed him
but unobstrusive otherwise.

My son-in-law, another friend and myself were the only divers. Stan the
divemaster was a consumate professional. He explained the dive sites and
let us choose which one we wanted to visit next. When in the water he
guided the first part of the dive and then left us to our own devices. It
was an absolute pleasure to have someone like him, after encountering a
host of idiots at many locations. The accomodations were very adequate with
good air conditioning, cable TV, and spotless rooms. The food was
plentiful, tasty, and one could choose from several main courses. The walls
are awesome with many crevices, swim-throughs, tunnels and openings at 40
feet which led out to the wall face at 140-150 feet. Some sections of the
reef evidence considerable encroachment by a green algae which shows a
preference for star corals, completely destroying them. Sponges do not seem
to be affected at all. The boat was, naturally, very spacious, if somewhat
slow. Nevertheless, this was not a consideration since the dive sites are
close by, the furthest being about 30 minutes away. All in all, I will
undoubtedly return.
