This was our second trip to the Sand Dollar Resort. We traveled with a
small group from Mermet Springs Dive Shop in southern Illinois. The air
temp was in the high 80's and water about the same. The shore diving is
usually easy with little current. Some locations require a little caution
when entering the water due to rocks. All the sites we visited were loaded
with corals, fish and critters. We saw several turtles and lots of morays.
My favorite dive sites were Karpata, Buena Vista, and Red Slave. We also
did a day trip with Larry's wild side. It was a lot of fun, especially the
white hole. The Sand Dollar is a comfortable place to stay and the included
breakfast is very good. The dive shop is on site with a pier to enter the
ocean. We had a rental truck and would recommend that you get on to see the
island and access the shore sites. Try Casablanca, The City Cafe, and a
host of other fine restaurants on the island. Driving is easy and nobody
seems to be overly impatient with the tourists. We took the all night
flight on Continental from Houston and arrived at 6am and were diving that
