Comments Outstanding dive masters. Carefully cleaned all gear every day and gave extremely good service. Some of the most colorful reefs in the Caribbean, very healthy with good coral and sponges. Plenty of Frogfish and Sea Horses. Reefs are now protected from fishing and larger fish are coming back. Dive sites no more than 10 minutes from the dock. Calm waters, easy diving, yet very interesting life for the experienced diver. Dive masters very good about finding critters and followed our requests.
On the whale watch we spent 30 minutes in the water with a 20-25 foot two year old Sperm Whale. She was very curious and allowed us to touch and interact with her. I've been diving for 40 years and this was one of the great experiences. Hotel is clean and comfortable, but not luxurious. Food is adequate and plentiful. Staff very friendly.

Island also has outstanding opportunities for land based eco-activities.
