Comments This was our 2nd time diving with Sand Dollar at the Wyndham Aura resort. As before, the operation was well done. We left on time around 8 am each day and were generally back at Aura before noon. Dive conditions and locations were excellent for someone like me (I can't speak for someone who has dived all over the world). Safety briefings were conducted before each dive, divemasters emphasized the 3 minute safety stop, and the number of divers was very manageable. In 4 days of diving, the max number of divers on the boat was 9, and on that occasion, there were two divemasters. Of particular importance to my wife and me was that our gear be taken care of by the people at Sand Dollar. They did not disappoint. Our gear was rinsed and hung up after each dive, and it was ready for us at least 30 minutes before the morning dives. The staff at the dive shop were helpful, friendly, and competent. We have no complaints about Sand Dollar.
