Comments The Good - We had a great 2 weeks at Island Seas Resort on GBI. Sunn Odyessy Divers owned by Nick Rolle is just around the corner. We dove with Nick the first time after our (then) regular dive operator was on vacation. What a lucky break! Nick's operation is well run and his level of knowledge, patience, and experience are second to none. The dive trips usually have 6 to 8 divers max. Our 12 year old Grandson, Spencer, got his Junior Open Water Certification during our stay and we have created a monster! Nick was extremely patient but very thorough with Spencer's class and pool work and his O/W Dives. A big "Thanks" to Nick, his wife Karen, and his Dive Master In-Training Cadron. I don't know why but the number and variety of fish seemed to be down. We saw no sharks and very few large fish. But all-in-all a great trip and can't wait to get back there.

The Bad - We saw tons of the beautiful, but invasive, lionfish! They were spotted at all depths from 100' to 20'. I got some great pictures of them, though.
