This is not a site for a casual diver.  However if you want to see a truly
different underwater area it is a must. Food is Family Inn style so if you
have a need for snacks bring your own, the rooms ddorm style. You are
treaated as a real diver and expected to act like one. As a diver you need
either a thick wet suit or a dry suit.  Barkley sound does not have extreme
currents and while we were there the ocean was calm.  The first 30-40 feet
had very low vis, though below this usually there was 60 plus foot vis. 
Most dives are on pinacles( Renatas Reef), though wall dives (Pill Point,
wreck dives (Hong Kong Express)) and shore dives can be done. Good nav
skills help as the anchor may be in a low vis area.  Don't swim too much. 
The amount of life is tremendous and it is better to explore the area
rather than storm through. A good light is a must.  The color of the fish
was more than I had thought with many being as bright as tropical fish. 
The rat fish are cute and the wolf eels are a little shy. A great area to
look at the interesting little stuff.
