Sunset House has a great location allowing it to dive the West side and
South side as well as Stingray City. Was surprised that there were no
afternoon dive boats other than Stingray City one or two times a week. Was
told that there needed to be at least 4-6 people for an afternoon boat
dive. I feel this is unacceptable. If there was a boat, divers would come.
Also, I have never been on a dive boat where all crew and Captain went in
the water leaving the boat unattended. This happened regularly. Mike
Pennington( Dive Shop Manager) and his staff were very friendly and
helpful. House Reef was excellent for a check out dive, but got tiresome
after six afternoons and nights.
