Comments Good, loved seeing the whale sharks! Long boat ride, up to 2 hours since the boat was not working on full power. No oxygen, no first aide kit on board, saw few life vests. Promised a trip to Glovers if enough people wanted to go (5). When I asked were we going told by 3 different people 3 different reasons why we were not. First was not enough people which I knew was untrue because I had the 5 people that wanted to go standing next to me, then told no boat, then told not enough people to run the boat (that they did not have).
I would go whale shark diving with Sea Horse again but I would not do any reefs with them, kept going to Laughing Bird Caye repeatedly, granted the third time was due to the swells.
Last day dove with Roberts Grove, what a difference, Big dive boat, well equipped. Would dive with them in a heart beat.

Cozy Corner was great spot, centrally located. Rooms were clean, had ac and ceiling fans. Restaurant food was good and good prices. Need shelves in bath rooms. Would stay with them again.
