Ocean Frontiers had a gift shop & booking desk at the resort as well as
at Compass Point where their main op is located.
Can't say enough in regards to friendly and competent dive op. Treated
divers like adults regardless of experience level. They kept and set up
gear daily. Had a problem with high pressure hose after am dives one day.
When I returned for pm dives it had been replaced. Very nice, roomy and
well-maintained dive boats. All tanks 3000psi. Nitrox @$12.00 per tank.
Choice of guided dives or not.
Nice wall diving. Coral was less than I had expected. Not bleached but
probably damaged due to hurricane Ivan which hit the east side very hard.
Lot of varied sea creatures. Saw a number of turtles, a few sharks and the
uncommon (I was told) manta visit on the Babylon wall site.
Another favorite site was Snapper Hole which, while lacking in coral, had a
good selection of critters from tarpon, spotted drum, nurse shark, banded
coral shrimp and groupers and some swim thrus.
The resort was well maintained with a beach bar for lunch and a restaurant
for breakfast and dinner. Did not open for breakfast until 8:00 (nor did
any other restaurant that I could locate) which was the time of the diving
departure. There was a grocery store across the street which opened at
7:00am which helped a bit. Our accomodations was an ocean front studio on
the 3rd floor with a jacuzzi and covered porch. Very clean. Good ac. Nice
view of beach and pool.
