Comments On the eastend away from the hustle and bustle of Seven Mile beach, and the cruse ship nightmare of the newlyweds, overfeds, and nearlydeads...which realy have the westend screwed up. I was suprised to see many highly advertised dive operators such as Sunset House , Don Fosters and others smack in the intersection of George Towne and Cruse Ship Tourist Hell Boulvard.

Compass Point offers rental car with each package, we were able to explore the island at our leisure, with a well stocked grocery store just 10min down the road and beach bars up and down the coast, what more could you ask for.

The dive operators Ocean Frontiers were courteous and professional, they made our divind as carefree and easy as possible, with most sites a five to fifteen miniute boat ride outside the lagoon. The walls were spectacular and the shallow coral gardens were lush, healthy, and colorful.

Can't wait to return.
