Boat trips from the dive site to the shore were very short so we could take
care of the camera when we arrived at the dock.

The Namenalala reef has many dive sites so it is possible to have
spectacular dives in any weather conditions.  The soft corals are out of
this world in color and variety.  The hard corals are comparable with the
best we have seen anywhere.  Everything is alive and undamaged.  The
Moody's Namena "resort" is small (only 6 bures) and remote. 
There were only a few other couples there during our visit.  The staff is
friendly and helpful while also being safety conscious.  Each bure is
accessible by trail and completely isolated with spectacular views.  The
resort is very eco-friendly with salt water and composting toilets, wind
and solar power which are supplemented with generators for the compressor. 
Alot of the food is raised on the island.  The resort is relatively
expensive because of the high staff to visitor ratio and the cost of
importing supplies.  If you enjoy being away from it all (no phones,
television, air conditioners) as much as we do you will have a terrific
time and the cost will be well worth the beautiful experience.
