The Wyndum resort was was not set up to accomodate divers. Most in our
group paid for an upgrade which put us further away from the boats and
docks. Worse the hours for meals almost totally precluded us from eating in
any of the restaurants. We tried to do 5 dives per day which for the most
part was impossible if you wanted to eat. Breakfast opened at 7-7:15 island
time making it difficult to get to the boats at 7:50am . THE BOATS CAME IN
AT 12:20 WITH LUNCH OPENING AT 12:30 but the afternoon boats loaded at
12:50. We soon gave up trying to get a sandwhich from any of the
restaurants despite telling the staff we only had 10-15 minutes.The
afternoon bosts came in at 5:30 with dinner at 6-6:15 island time and the
same 6:50 loading window. We finished the week tired of the hassle despite
this September Fest week being a designated dive week for our large group
of predominantly 60 divers.
