Comments Tiny island, about twice the length of the runway. Landside was great. Food and service superior even though there is only one restaurant open at any meal. Diving was relaxing, easy diving, nice formations and fair number of fish. Dive leaders, for the most part, did their thing and sometimes lost track of you, no big deal, we like it that way. Due to the dive shop's insistance on feeding sharks, there is no safe beach activity at all. Although they would tell you it's safe to snorkle with the sharks (chummed in to shore), a shark researcher was hit last year in thigh-deep water and another diver just after our visit. Also interesting was that the noise from the islands only truck approaching the feeding area (without food and not at feeding time) drew numerous large sharks into very shallow (1-3 ft) water near the feeding platform. Their sensory perception was exceptional.
