Photo ops off Bari Reef at the Sand Dollar are immeasurable!  I could spend
days on the house reef taking pictures. Separate rinse tanks  for cameras
are available.

The Introduction briefing is a put you to sleep talk.!  Almost an hour of
grocery store and shopping talk and the diving..other than that, the
experience was fantastic! The food is great and the diving is awesome.  the
storage facilities need definate work and the gear room could use some
opening to allow shore diving more easily.  The dive tanks on the dock were
easily accessable and night diving took minimal planning...just rememeber
to get your gear out of the gear room before 4:30. :) The rooms were great,
no air conditioning except for the bedrooms. the screened in back porch was
fantasic for sitting in the evenings enjoying the breezes off the ocean. 
overall a most enjoyable trip and I would definately recommend Sand Dollar
to anyone
