[None]We have be going to Captain Don's for years.  We always have a great
time.  The rooms are nicer than the larger units.  Dive operation has
always been good.  The food on site has always been so so and remains that
way.  The food service was really bad.  As in BAD !  The off site places
were much better.  Coral was still in good shape.  One site, that is not
dived regularly, was as good as it gets.  Little fish are still there in
great numbers but that is about it. Saw very few angels etc.  Still nice
easy diving and a great place to learn under water photography.
