Plenty of small fish, with many large schoolings, large tarpon and grouper,
turtles, eels, cool swim thrus to set up shots. Fresh water rinse tubs for

The very best dive operation I've ever had the pleasure of using. You
unload you gear the first day, they dress the tanks, wash out your gear,
and it's waiting for you the next day on the boat. Between dives, fresh dry
towels waiting after a fresh water rinse. Cold drinking water, punch, and
cut fruit with a ride on the bow of the boat.

Dive your own profile with a computer, Nitrox divers in the water first,
usually 55 to 65 minutes if you are the last one back on the boat. Got nick
named "Bottom TIme Bandit" by one of the Brit crew members.

The East end is fantastic diving compared the the crowded West end, but the
secret is getting out and Ocean Encounters is adding more boats to
accomodate the crowds.
