Divemaster Mike was very helpful in giving pointers, pointing out subjects,
and working with photographers.  He even offered to take a look at photos
in the evenings and give feedback.  Overall, we had better photos because
of his help.  The boat did have a tank, but the tank was not large enough
for larger cameras, and our large camera had to sit elsewhere.

We had a wonderful time at Southern Cross Club.  The staff was wonderful,
as always (this was our third trip).  Diving was top notch.  We had some
choppy water and some days that were smooth as glass - the winds were being
fickle and we had some wind some days.  In general, we got to see some dive
sites we'd never seen before, and everything was perfect.  We were diving
with a smaller group - 6-8 people each day - which made for nice, relaxing
dives.  Spent time with Grouper, a school of squid, a couple nurse sharks,
and lots of fish.  

We did not see Lionfish while we were there, but the divemasters were
constantly on the look out and reminded us each dive to keep our eyes open
for Lionfish.

Accomodations and food were wonderful.  We visited the resort over the
fourth of July holiday and had the pleasure of seeing a fantastic fireworks
display.  We were also married during this trip, and I would highly
recommend the resort if you are thinking of doing a small, low key

No complaints from us!  We had a wonderful trip.
