Nature Island Dive was great. We did 11 dives, 5 of the dives were just my
wife and I, the other 6 dives only had 4 of us. DM's (Tony and Oscar) were
great, bottom times averaged 62 minutes. Captain was helpful getting on and
off boat. True valet diving, they rinsed our gear each night and set it up
in the morning and switched our tanks between dives. Boat was wide and
roomy. Dive sites were only 5 minutes away so we came to shore between
dives. Nice varied topography, flat reef dives, mini-walls to 100 feet,
deep walls to 400+ ft, and our favorite topography was the pinnacle dives
where you would drop to 80 ft and do a 360 spiral around the pinnacle going
muti-level up to the flat top at 30 ft. Saw all kinds of fish and critters,
 2 -4 spotted eels on every dive, 4 - 6 spotted drums on every dive,
peacock flounders, flying gurnards, turtles and a juvenile trunkfish the
size of a marble. One young turtle swam with us for 10 minutes going right
up to all 5 divers checking each of us out, he even bumped my wife's camera
lens. Stayed at the Evergreen Hotel in the Sea View Hut. Nice, simple
accomodations located about 20 minutes north of Nature Island Dive. We
drove ourselves down each morning, I was hoping the drive was a simple easy
drive along the water but it turned out to be on narrow streets though
small villages and twisty roads in the mountain, but the great service from
NID made the drive worthwhile. Warning, on the weekends a loud music club a
block away from the Evergreen plays until early morning(3 - 5 AM) making it
hard to sleep. Food was good in the restaurant, the pool was nice after
diving. We also did 2 dives with Dive Dominica located next door at Castle
Comfort Lodge. They are a good op with a large, comfortable boat and good
staff. But there were 11 divers and 2 DM's on our dives and that just
wasn't as nice as the near private diving we had with NID. We enjoyed the
outdoor bar along the water at Castle Comfort more than the indoor bar at
the Evergreen
