plenty of dry space and separate camera tanks on the boats, the crew did a
good job of keeping masks out of the camera tank

First this is a great operation, great location. I heartily recommend it
for experienced divers who like to get away from it all. Good
accommodations, great staff, great food, convenient location (short boat
rides), well equipped big dive boats that, true to their website are not
crowded. Our week featured bright sunny weather with some gentle, but big,
swells and it became clear why they had these boats. They handled the
conditions easily. Big seas meant no one was allowed to walk around on deck
with tanks on. The crew brings you your tank and you are fitted with your
equipment on seats at the swim platform and step into the water, reverse
the procedure once on board. The crew takes the tanks and change them out
for the next dive (awesome for us guys with wives). Definitely use Nitrox
for the week if you can, the Southern walls are fairly deep and deep is
where you will see the "pelagics" and there are a lot of cool
swim throughs and cracks in the walls so its well worth the expense for the
extra minutes. We did see several sharks, two hammerheads which were
spectacular. Our favorite site was Wilderness Wall. The Tibbets is also a
must see, huge ship and truly a wreck, it looks like they pulled the plug
with the engines running,lots of interesting gear to see including a jet
For you bone fisherman bring your gear there is an abandoned resort up the
street with some challenging fish in the flats. In shore fishing is
permitted from the shore only, no flats boats.
Don't expect night life outside the resort although they have local
entertainers several nights.
Our biggest problem for the week? trying to decide which one of the three
amazing deserts offered nightly would we not eat ;-)
