Comments CON-We left late consistently for morning dives (45min.-11/2 hours late). You return after two dives in the morning, no head on the boat. Not even drinking water available on the boat. They have a sign that says "protect our reefs No Gloves", yet they allowed at least one older women to wear gloves and she proceeded to dive by holding on and swimming from coral to coral. I watched her crash into and break several pieces of staghorn coral. The dive guides refused to correct or educate her (she spoke no English but they have at least one dive guide who spoke fluent Japanese!! When I asked about it they just shrugged their shoulders.
Pro- tanks consistently filled to 3000psi
