Comments UNEXSO had well-equipped boats and a comfortable dive master/diver ratio. The crews were friendly and professional and were good guides. Minor negatives: no fruit/snacks between dives and crew in no hurry to change to new tanks. The boats were not crowded, but March is not the busy season. Dove Theos Wreckdont miss it. Shark feeding was awesome while very safety-oriented. Lots of reef sharks, nurse shark, large groupers, turtle, moray eels, lion fish everywhere. Expensive dolphin swim was worth it and better than dolphin dive. Westin Our Lucaya and all its restaurants were great. Market place dining was not impressive except breakfast at Calleys. Cannnot recommend Zorbas.
