Could not dive on the (normal) south side due to high surf, so we dove on
the north side (we were bused there and back each day, a 15 minute ride). 
This side is normally rough, but the water was calm as glass; even the dive
masters commented on how unusual that was.  Shore diving from Sunset House
and diving on the south side only opened up the day we left.  Sunset Divers
are always professional and helpful, and we noted that dive masters were
still there from our visit two years ago, a rarity in this high-turnover
profession.  Unfortunately, the reefs even on the north side are not as
beautiful as they used to be and we found far fewer fish of any size and
almost no large ones.  Perhaps this was due to the weather which poured
rain nearly all day every day, but didn't affect the diving.  I was
certified at Sunset House 20 years ago and will always go back for easy
warm-water diving and amenities such as the little salt-water bay for
buoyancy checks and access to a great shore dive to see the Little Mermaid.
