If you do not have time to do a white balance check at depth.  Set your
white balance to over cast it is a quick set and it worked fabulously.

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.
