The Island is more remote thus you need more transportation to get there,
but well worth it. We were there during Thanks Giving week. Lots of great
dive sights to pick from that would take you a month to see them all.
Mostly did the north side walls. Did south side when a front went through
and produced some moderate seas on the north. Was glad the south side was
nearly as good. So pretty much no matter what the weather Hurricane
excluded you diving. 18 members of our Delaware Valley Dive club most all
did Nitrox with computers and we had all three tanks on board. The 3
rebreathers were kept center deck, and still had lots of room on the boat
for more divers if needed. In AM or previous day PM, check your O2 and
label the tank with the Dive boat and your name and it shows up in the tank
rack on board with your BC/reg put on for you. Confirm your equipment check
and youre off to the dive site you pick or let them recommend. White board
briefings were excellent with lots of pointers and info so self-navigation
was easy. Dive masters also offer guides/escorts if you like. Getting your
equipment on when the waves were up was easy. They do it for you. We called
it Valet diving. You and your buddy carry your fins/mask sit on two
platforms on the stern and they carry your equipment to you. So equipment
self and buddy checking must be done first and again in the water, but it
still is great to be waited on if you like. You are free to dive your own
dive profile within 100-ft limits and time [no decompression]. Extra hose
with reg hangs at 20 feet if ever needed. Generally 3 tanks a day, 2
morning-lunch-1 in pm, 1-2 night dives. Video of one of your dives included
in our package of a week and 3 meals a day. We had such a good time and
some fun with the dive staff. They even came to our party. The air sucking
pigs showed up in costume and dove. The pirates were caught sporting their
under water flag for the Video, all makes great memories. Two reef sharks
slowly cruised by our group for lots of photo OPs. Walls are very good.
Good fish populations and healthy looking big coral/sponges. No hunting so
sea life is more freindly. I had a turtle swim right into my under camera
lens. Supper shot. On shore great food buffet style all you can eat. Plenty
of cold drinking water on board, but take some fruit with you from
breakfast to increase your after diving pleasure on the short boat ride
back. Pool side and hot tub side liquid refreshments from the bar gave us
lots of time for discussing just how large that Ray really was. Flowering
atrium style layout of the facility has that relaxed tropical hide away we
really liked. Our group celebrated 2 birthdays, 1 anniversary, with cake
the resort was able to provide. Also a VCR/TV for roasting the guilty
parties. We had an evening Port and Starboard team competition and invited
the whole resort to join us with the winning team sharing the liquid rum
prize with the defeated. Over all a well managed Friendly, Safe, Secure and
filled with pleasured Conveniences. I accidentally unknowingly left my VHF
I travel with on board and was happy to receive it in the mail. This one is
on my list for places to go back to. Great week, great dives, great
location and great vacation.
