Comments Let's start with the bad first: Ocean Frontiers told us they had a broken boat so in which case they had to put 14 divers on each of our 10 dives. That really BLEW! But putting that aside! Ocean Frontiers was fabulous. We had a spectacular time. Our main dive master was Ian and he was really great. Request him if you can. Now let my share the highlight of our trip. My husband and I were luckily enough to observe two squid perform a beautiful mating dance right in front of us in the middle of the day. Unbelievably beautiful! It was a moment we will never forget! The wall diving and tunnels were also breathtaking. The reef was in wonderful condition. We will return again and again. Beware of incompetent divers though. Ocean Frontiers doesn't seem to verify diver's experience too well. Our last 2 tank afternoon dive was with 14 divers. 9 of those divers were blatantly inexperienced and probably had not dove in years. This made for a miserable dive for those of us with experience. These divers jeopardized their own safety as well as everyone elses. One person even did a header of the boat because they weren't paying attention! We would have been happier if the staff was a little more cautious on whom they put in the water especially when the dives are to 100 feet!!!!
One more thing: If you get a chance have a private boat take you for a shallow dive to deep stingray city. We highly recommend Peter with Fat Fish Adventures. He is very reasonable and he will make sure you are surrounded by the most beautiful stingrays you have ever seen. That one little 12 foot dive was beyond words. When you get bored with the Rays if that is possible!!! swim over to the huge coral heads and visit with the resident Nurse Shark and Moray eel. There is a great thermo cline there so they are absolutely covered with life. It is a GREAT dive for the day before you fly out.
