The boat was large, lots of room.  They seemed to have lots of newbies.  No
snacks were provided, even when we did three dives in a day.  Cookies
people!!!  Go to Cuz (tiny shack off the beach) for great fish sandwich for
lunch or a snack.

The DMs were good.  Don't remember getting a safety briefing, though.  We
also wish they and other operations would remind everyone not to touch or
step on or in any other way damage the coral!!

Did the final dive with just one DM, Danny.  That went well as we were
taking pictures and it gave us the time to do a decent job. 

Good rinse facilities back on shore.  Dive departure and return times are
somewhat unreliable (we arranged for a taxi to pick us up at 3:30 because
the dive was supposed to be complete by 2:30.  We didn't arrive back to the
shore until after 4:00!)

Good attitude from boat and shop staff and they took care of us. Overall
good experience.
