Family of 4 for first post-certification open water tropical diving. Could
not have made a better choice of destination or dive ops. From the first
day, Reef Divers staff made us welcome and gave us the confidence and
support to dive successfully, safely and have a great time. Valet service
was a big plus for us as new divers (could concentrate on in-water diving
basics). Could follow divemasters (which we often did) or go on own (which
we also did) and explore on our own around boat to finish dive. Entry by
giant stride from comfortable rear deck; exit by large stern laders with
tailing line to prevent ladder traffic jams. Boats comfortable and well
laid out, even when full to capacity. Excellent, entertaining and
informative but not overwhelming pre-dive briefings. Good camaraderie with
fellow divers. Very thorough roll calls after dives completed. Plenty of
snacks, fruit, water for surface intervals. Typical day was deep first
dive, often with interesting swim-throughs and/or wall. Shallower spur
& groove reef for 2nd AM dive. Lunch at shore. PM dive, more spur &
groove, more laid back but still lots to see; fewer divers for PM. Garden
eels, flying gurnards, nurse sharks, juvenile spotted drum, lobster,
flamingo tongue, tarpon!, eagle rays, huge grouper, variety of morays and
more. Wrecks were a special treat and set up very well for less experienced
divers to visit. Night dive was well worth it; schedule depends on advance
sign-ups, so register early or be disappointed. Snorkeling from shore also
excellent, if care given to coral underfoot, tide/surge conditions; many
dive mooring buoys accessible from shore under right conditions; bring dive
flag. Saw squadrons of squid on several occasions. Great hiking around
island, very friendly locals. Cooked our own food most meals (local
groceries not as expensive as rumored) but enjoyed Aunt Sha's, and highly
recommend Barry's Golden Jerk stand, the absolute best; be sure not to
miss, only open a few nights per week. Brac Reef resort puts out a nice
buffet spread and has a good bar menu for lunches (but costs can add up
quickly for a family of four; be careful). Divemasters Jason and Vicki and
other Reef Divers and Brac Reef staff went out of their way to make this
first tropical dive trip a success for all of us. Next trip back to the
Brac, already scheduled, diving again with Reef Divers.
