Comments 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.
