Boats had plenty of fresh water barrels but none labeled for cameras only. 
No facilities on shore for cameras. They do have wireless high speed

The hotel facilities are definitley designed for divers. Nothing fancy but
there were hanging racks for your gear. Despite the hurricane 8 months
prior the facility was fully functional and  in great shape.  The food was
excellent and service was great.  I am glad I brought my laptop and DVDs.
There are no TVs in the rooms, just an alarm clock/radio.  The instuctor
was outstanding. I completed 2 specialites while I was there. The boats
were in excellent condition and although the big boat I was on had about 18
divers, we entered the water in 3 groups and did not overlap with the other
groups.  I was able to get in an afternoon boat dive every day.  Shore
diving is not worth the effort. It was good on the first day to check out
my equipment and bouyancy since it had been a few months and I had some new
equipment for the trip, otherwise the bottom around the hotel area is
barren. I plan to return next year.
