Comments  
all shore diving from resort, no advanced divers during my week there so
all shore dives 60', currents strong at times and might change direction
during the dive, one new DM guided us past the entrance back to the resort
and a group of 5 of us had to be "rescued" by boat due to
currents(interesting experience), many resort divers included in dives but
as we were wall diving it was easy enough to avoid them at depth, had to be
shuttled 1 mile to boat diving, some long distances to boat dives with
strong currents, actually did first drift dive, all in all a good
experience
