Saw many sharks (Blacktips,Caribbean Reefs,Nurse and Bull Sharks)and 
more Spotted Eagle rays than anywhere I've been. Once, there were at least
8 Eagle Rays swimming in a line along a reef. Not many regular
Caribbean fish, only a few Angels, Trumpetfish, Tangs,etc.
Reefs in good condition; Shark Rodeo interesting and well done.

The shop took me out 2 days when I was the only diver. They use a nice 42
ft.turbo drive boat (no prop). The dives consisted of many caverns and
swim-throughs and were short distances from the shop.
I wore a 1.5 mm wetsuit and became cold when the bottom temp became 
lower than 75. Next time, I'll bring a 3 mm suit.
My only criticism is that when other divers were on board ( five divers
altogether), the briefings were short and did not let the novice divers
(<10 dives)realize what they would be getting into on swim-throughs.
Some of those swim-throughs were long and had many turns and sometimes very
dark ahead and I could see that a few divers were very intimidated but felt
that they had no option but to follow the divemaster. I'd rather see 2
divemasters on this type of dive so that one divemaster could take those
who were afraid around the tunnels and meet the group on the other side.
This small group became separated at one point and it was quite a while
before the divemaster went to look for the missing.
