DM's stated max depth and times, but we were free to dive our computers and
breathe out the air in our tanks.  I never felt rushed.  Buddy pairs
strongly suggested, but not mandated.  DMs led "guided tours" for
those who wanted to join.

No processing available on the island.  Boat had a bucket, but no dry table
for changing film [for those dinosaurs, like us, who still use film] or
messing with cameras.

Good:  A funky, very laid back place for a vacation.  Everything is taken
care of.  The food is excellent, varied, and plentiful.  Wine is ok, and
also plentiful.  Open bar for guests [but no drinking in the AM before
diving!].  Lunch served about 15 minutes after returning from the morning
dives.  Cocktail hour before dinner, with hors d'ouvres.  After dinner,
dominoes with Gladys.  A good dive op, with plenty of DM attention for
those who want it.  Small groups on the "guided tour".  Several
eagle rays were spotted on this trip, and a turtle or 2.  A nice boat, and
fun, informative DM's who have a serious respect -- almost a reverence --
for the reefs and life down there.  Accommodations are decent, and it was
worth it to us to pay $10 extra a day for A/C.  Lots of hammocks in the
shade for afternoon naps.  Gladys is a genial hostess and made us all feel
like family.

Not so Good:  I was disappointed that there were not as many fish, and very
few large fish -- considerably down from when I was at Bloody Bay Wall 4
years ago.  But the corals are healthy despite the big hurricane last year,
and there are lots of juveniles, so the populations will come back.  Those
who want an early start to the dive day will be disappointed, as the dive
staff also serve and clean up from breakfast, making departure ~9AM, and
return ~1:30 or 2PM.  No afternoon dives, infrequent night dives.
