They have large fresh water rinse tanks on all boats that are clearly
marked for cameras only and as long as only 8-12 people on the boat, plenty
of room for working on them. Shore facility has similiar rinse tank but it
sits in the sun so by afternoon, the water is really hot.

6th Stay at Habitat, rooms being well maintained now and include cable TV.
The service is typical Caribbean, don't expect fast service and the menu
hasn't changed much at all since first going there in 1997. Prices have
gone up but not a lot. The shore diving from the resort is still the best
I've had, there are lots to see and the corals are very healthy. Boat
diving is very good but be warned, Mushroom Forest is rapidly going south.
Although first time visitors thought it was great, I know what it used to
look like. There are many bleached and dead coral heads there and obvious
signs that it is advancing rapidly. The DM's admitted it was getting worse
and they felt it was from to many divers, warming waters and damage from
storms. They need to close this area for a couple of years to let it
recover. Storm one night during a dive, 20-25mph winds, rain, thunder &
lightning. Had to crawl up the ladder due to wave action. Later went back
down and helped another couple exit the water as by that time waves coming
over the dock!
