Chose East End due to our fears of wind shutting us out at other spots.
Constant wind over 10 knots made getting back aboard the boat interesting.
Dive operation is first class giving each diver the degree of attention
each needed or wanted. Once in the water the divemasters would lead any
divers on a 30 minute guided dive around the reefs and leave us in sight of
the boat.Several divers were solo and wanted to do their own thing which
was allowed. Boats were comfortable and well maintained. The crew of two on
our boat worked very hard to set up our equipment at the beginning of the
trip and at each tank change.Dive briefings were good. Water and juice were
available and orange smiles were handed out between dives. Coral was in
good shape ,fish life was a little sparse. I cannot help but notice a trend
in the last few years of fish populations declining-sad thing. Our condo
was right on the walk to the dive boats and was clean,comfortable and
properly equipped with kitchen utensils and pots. There is a grocery store
about 2 miles away. There are several restaurants close by as well. This is
a nice place away from the cruise ships,7 mile beach and tourist bother- if
that interests you.We stayed for 4 nights and dove 3 days- not very long
and we were sorry to leave.
