Dive Policy
Dive own profile
Enforced diving restrictions  
We were able to dive our own profiles, and we were the only ones on the
boat so other then safety stops we were free to dive.  I assume if we
wanted to do something very deep we probably would have had some
Nitrox Available?

Qamea resort is not easy to get to, three flights, a van ride and then a
boat just to get to the resort, however it was worth it.  Very nice resort,
with super nice people, and a full menu and Bar area.  The resort is very
conscious of their being on an island inhabited with natives and go out of
there way to be respectful and helpful of their neighbors.  
The diving was very good, while there was an absence of eels and turtles,
there was exceptional reef life.  Reefs were very health and water had in
parts exceptional clarity.  Drift diving in the stronger currents allowed
for some of the reef and soft coral to open up which made for very exciting
diving with small to big being seen.
By the way, the reefs were so health because people do not seem to dive
here.  Not only were we the only ones on the dive boat, we were sometimes
the only boat on the water.  
Dive staff was helpful, friendly and professional
