Although you can't get E6 processing at the resort, you can in town.  Most
of us were using digital, so it wasn't a problem.  The divemasters rinsed
our cameras after each dive, and our rooms are close enough that we could
carry them to the room after diving.

This was my third trip to Dive Dominica, and we're planning to go back
again next year!  Since they created a marine park in the area where most
of the dive sites are, there are more eels and fish than on previous trips.
 Still no really large fish, but saw one huge turtle eating (right off the
pier from Castle Comfort), and flying gurnards and seahorses are all over
the place.  Also found an incredible batfish off the pier.  Spotted drums
are everywhere, as are every type of eel.  Also found yellow headed jawfish
with eggs. 

The staff at Castle Comfort/Dive Dominica are the best.  They are happy and
professional, and we've been so often that they now remember us when we
return.  This is our favorite land based dive operation in the Caribbean,
and we've been to a lot of them!
