Comments The rooms have an A/C, fan, refrigerator, hot water in shower, good bed, and a great view.
There were 9 divers and two dive masters on the boat and it was not crowded. The front part of the boat is inclosed, which is nice when you go out to Bligh Waters.
Breakfast consists of juice, fruit, dry ceral, muffins and eggs or pan cakes ordered from the menu.
Lunch was a burger, fish sandwich, pasta, etc.
Supper was soup, a main dish and desert. Evidently, they had bought a boat load of Wahoo, because we had Wahoo several times and it was good.
The two dives in Bligh Waters were very good with a good number of fish and great coral.
The other dives sites did not have near as many fish. I was here 3 years ago and the number of fish now is much much less. When you end up taking pictures of coral, that is a sure sign that there are not many fish.
I love the people and the resort, but probably will not return.
