Grand Bahama is a VERY friendly island.  You have to take in a Fish Fry
while on the island!  Island Seas Resort is in need of some maintenance.
Being a Time Share instead of privately owned units shows less TLC in the
unit.  Bare bones accomodations.  Had all the essentials though and air
conditioning worked.  Be prepared for early check out time - 10:00 am. 
Wanted $50.00 to stay another hour.  Sunn Odyssey Divers was good -
friendly operation. Drinking water on board but no snacks. First day boat
dives were about a C.  2nd day was a B+.   They cancelled 3rd day due to
bad weather, but other operations went out (we were the only 2 booked for
the boat so not much motivation to go out?).  Always came up with over 1000
psi.  Shark Junction is incredible.  Approximately 12 reef sharks followed
us around while we swam about the canyons in the reef.  Saw quite a few
lionfish each day.
