I am a beginner UWP and my questions to the photo shop were answered vary
vaguely.  I think they had the attitude "sign up for a course and we
will give your your answers."

One of the other operators had a pair of divers (mother and a 13 year old)
that paniced on a deep dive.  A mask got kicked off and they swallowed
water/surfaced too fast, and the 13 year old boy was pretty shaken up and
non-responsive at first.  The mother was absolutely hysterical.  Our crew
was the closest and lended aid.  Our divmasters (Max and Christian) did an
absolutely superb job handling this emergengy situation.  Our boat returned
the pair back to their resort with no immediate problems.  I never heard
the final outcome or if they got bent, but I feel our crew performed at
110% !!

Food was good but fairly plain.  I've definitely had more inspired food at
other resorts.  Restuarant service was very good, especially the short
order cook at breadfast.

This is valet diving.  To get in the water you site down on the swim
platform and the crew brings your SCUBA rig to you.  Upon exiting the water
they take off your rig and stow it for you, very nice.

You don't need to bring your dive bag as they assign a numbered one to you
as the start of your diving.  I ended up paying overweight charges to the
airlines for bags I nevers used.

All in all a wonderful trip and they were very accomodating to my
childern/young divers (9,10 & 14).
