UW Photo Comments Clear water, no current, and a TON of small colorfull fish and coral make this an ideal place for any photographer. No dedicated rinse tanks, but a sink in every room makes up for it. Wireless internet facilitates instant uploading of your digital images.

Comments The owners are avid divers and made many great recomendations with regards to local sites. In fact my favorite location was off the map, on a tip. Breakfast every morning was outstanding. The Inn uses Wannadive Resort as their dive shop, friendly service and very accomodating. Free nitrox upgrades. The rooms were comfortable, but the rinse tanks were mostly dirty. Also the key to the gear locker is left outside, where anyone can find it, so be careful there. Truck rental was included with our package, and we were able to make 3 dives our first day on the island. Free rum punch parties both at the Inn and other resorts, for those so inclined.
