Comments [The resort is an older shore- based facilty with a 49 year record of operation.Our package gave us 2 boat dives with the easy ability to do 2 or 3 more shore dives each day. The statue on the reef with Paul Allen's submarine in the vicinity added a nice touch. We additionally got transportation and did other sites which were well worth the hauling of gear. Both Devil's Grotto at Eden Rock and sites on the North End were excellent with much more dramatic drop offs on the North End. The dive crew catered to us and provided a better stingray city experience with the rays and the resident moray.Overall the trip was a pleasant one with this facilty having strikingly similiar feelings to the Scuba Club in Cozumel. The resort is comfortable without frills with not as good a food as Scuba Club but clearly catering to divers.
