Boat has a cooler for camera's but if alot of camrea's it is too small,but
crew very careful with handling equipment.I took my laptop along again this
time to get my photos on to my hard drive and show them to the staff and
other divers,as there is no t.v.{thank god}

Well this is the second time that I have been down diving with Marisol
Diver's this year.This trip was planned with hoping to see Whale
sharks,with the 2 weeks that I booked were right during the full moon
cycle.Got a chance to not only to see, but get some nice pictures of 2
different Whale sharks!! I seen 3 during the 2 tank trips that I took 2
times.The boat ride was some what rough the first trip but better the
second time,it's about a 45 min. boat ride froom the island down to Gladden
Split where you do the diving.It is managed by the game wardens,with only
12 divers/snorkelers per boat and only a limited number of boats allowed at
a time divng with them,so there could be a wait to take your turn going
into the area.I still am amazed by the amount and size of the
coral--barrel/tube sponges and amount of fish life.Again the food was
exellent and the staff is just like family to me.Only problems at the
resort was a water hose break on the fresh water pump damaging the electric
circuit box and a water pump that went bad on the generator but both
problems were fixed in what I considered was record time considering where
we were at.I just got done reading this monthes UNDERCURRENT and I could
not help but smiling to myself and saying YES to the lead story when M.A.
was talking about Glover's Reef, it is that GOOD!! On my first trip I only
stayed here for 1 week, but this time was 2 weeks and I can't say that I
want to go diving anywhere else while in Belize!If you love to
dive/eat/sleep this is one of the best places that I have been to and plan
on going back after the first of the year when I have somemore vacation to
use up in Paradise.
