We have visited Scuba Club many times, but not since right after Wilma. 
The diving was greatly effected by Wilma, but has come back nicely.  Most
of the deep reefs are okay now, and the shallow reefs have come back from
their sand over.

The life was plentiful, including lots of small and medium fish.  A few
very large parrot fish, groupers, nurse sharks, turtles, lobster and crabs.
 On a twilight dive we saw a marlin that swam by us about 20 feet away.  On
a night dive we encountered an octopus with a firm grasp of a medium size
fish.  On shore dives in front of the resort we saw seahorses, lots of
rays, eels, scorpionfish and lionfish.

Our Dive Master speared a few lionfish and fed them to lobsters, eels, and

We did 18 dives over 6 days.  Our friends from Calgary did 25 dives in 6

The food wasn't as good as we remembered, but was still acceptable.  We
went to town for a couple dinners and experienced great food at reasonable
prices at Primas and Kinta.
