Comments We came here specifically to dive the Rainbow Reef and in particular the Great White wall. We only had two day's of diving and one day of snorkeling. It is a small dive operation but they take care of all of your gear including setup, breaking down, washing, and drying at the end of your diving, plus pickup and delivery to your cabin. The best diving is the drift diving, it is beautiful and exciting. If divers are inexperienced in strong currents and doing their safety stops in current, they will be intimidated. If you have a mixed group of divers, you might not get the best diving this location can offer. They do break the groups up, with very competent dive masters, so that helps. Dive briefings were excellent, the dive boat had fresh juice and food on board. Runs to dive sites were about 20-25 minutes.
We snorkeled the last day prior to flying. It was spectacular and a great way to de gas.
The lodge is phenomenal. Beautiful grounds with their own gardens, serving delicious food. All lodging is in individual or family cabins. Our cabin was filled with flowers with a large porch overlooking the water. This is a special place.
