[None]No need to bring gear bag--it's provided with a numbered tag to store
your gear at the boat.  The meals are buffet-style and breakfast is cooked
to order.  The cuisine is not gourmet but hot and tasty with plenty of
choice.  However, the floor in the dining room is always dirty and I never
spotted anyone mopping.  
     The dive sites are loaded with fish but no big stuff--only an
occasional eagle ray or stingray seen.  Octopi seen on two different dives.
 We missed a dive day due to the proximity of Tropical Storm Arlene and
thereby missed going down on the Paul Tibbets.
     The boat crews were knowledgeable and enthusiastic and very helpful
with gear and showed a lot of stuff when diving with us.  There are DAN O2
kits on the boats.
     The rooms and mattresses have seen better days, but the air
conditioning worked well.  One must wait a minute or two for the hot
"cold" water to cool at all taps.  The lodging environs are quite
pleasant with a nice open-air bar.
     Overall, One of the nicest weeks diving I've spent!
