Comments 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.
