After reading many reader reports, having been with this operator before.
Everything was as expected. The boats were full but everything ran smoothly
and all was managed well. After 2 dives on 6 wrecks, 2 dives with the
sharks I was ready for a reef dive. I just had to ask.
Stuart Coves is all the way west from the hotels and downtown. They pick up
and drop off, but would not do so for a night dive( a taxi was $30 each
way. So no night dive. The other operators don;t have the same traffic so
no night dives there either.
The sharks were awesome and plentiful.
