Sunset Waters is located on the SouthWest end of the island.  There is not
much development here and only one other dive operation.  The resort has a
great beach, including a clothing optional section, a nice pool area with a
swim up bar and most of all great service.  The food is plentiful and good
but not fancy.  If you are looking for night life this is not the place
(unless you bring it with you)but this is a great place for a relaxing

Sunset Divers is a first rate operation.  They load your gear on the boat
each day and change it to a new tank between dives.  Kevin and his staff of
Lynn, Barron, and Carlos were very friendly, courteous, knowledgeable and
helpful.  I especially liked the fact that they did not set diving limits
but were available on each dive for those that wanted to follow them. 
There was nothing I asked for that they didn't provide.

The diving here is pretty standard for the area.  Lots of corals, small
fish, eels, etc.  Don't expect to see much, if any, large critters.  The
diving is easy, we had current on only one day of the week, and the water
is warm and clear.  We were there only a few days after Hurricane Ivan
brushed by and that may have affected the vis and the fish life somewhat. 
There was little or no damage to the island and I saw only a little reef
damage in just a few areas.

On our last night we took and booze cruise out of the dive shop.  We saw an
area where tuna were feeding and the captain, Mike the owner of the dive
shop, eased the boat up close so we could get a good look at the frenzy. 
Suddenly he spotted a whale shark that swam around the boat a few time
before leaving.  That was pretty cool but, of course, would have been much
better to spot one during a dive.

Overall, I would very much recommend the resort and the dive operation but
the diving will not excite very experienced divers.
