[My Dive buddy and I(My buddy's 43 and I am 44 years old) had bad intel for
the trip,did not do enough research via web or other. Our trip package was
done though Ocean Sports of Edmonton, and guided by Karl. Our package said
unlimited shore dives with 4 per rented truck and condo unit,we found that
4 per truck was a bit crowded and very hard to get in more than 2-3 dives a
day,-to many divers with different dive habits. We wanted to dive 3-4 times
a-day,others were happy with 1 or 2 dives,we didn't travel all that way to
lose out on some dives...Rent your own truck per dive buddy/habit team. The
condo had no soap/shampoo,toilet paper,no ceiling fans or any gear hooks
and hangers, was right next to the Airport and a 7 minute drive to town,
not very convenient... That info was not related to us so we had some
issues. We would rather stay in town for the convenience. You have to drive
all over the island to the different dive sites anyway so staying in town
would be better for us. Photo Tours Dive Shop was very professional,the 1
boat dive we took was very good with exceptional service from the
Divemaster Chili and his assistant Divemaster, although we missed a couple
of apparently excellent guided shore dives...the dive shop should give each
diver a list of potential guided dives available! The food experience was
great,Lost Penguin,Chibi Chibi,.The weather kind of sucked, a bit of a
tropical storm blew though,although we were told it was very unusual, the
diving was great, a bit more work than boat dives but you learn lots of
great skills, not getting tumbled in the surf, navigation, dive profiles,
currents and surge, organizational skills, weather and tidal watching. The
Island was beautiful and not ruined by any overdevelopment,the people were
very freindly and the Dutch ladies very sweet... I'll be baacckk...
