Gilles and Frank run a solid, top-notch operation. We never dove with more
than 4 people. Entry is back roll and BC and tank can be removed prior to
climbing out on ladder. You set up your gear for the first dive each day
and then they changed it between dives. Two one tank dives in morning and
one dive in afternoon ( class or beginners.) Usually one dive inside lagoon
and second dive outside. Dive shop has rinse facilities, fresh water
showers, and well  ventilated, locked storage facility for gear left
overnight. Gilles and Frank are very safety conscious, gave complete and
detailed dive briefings, and were eager to point out interesting finds
during each dive. They are personable and enthusiastic and extremely
knowledgeable about local sites and marine life. Hard coral abundant and in
good condition - no soft coral or sponges. Fish were very curious, swimming
right into your mask. Saw a few black tip and lemon sharks on each dive as
well as turtles, sting rays, large trigger fish guarding nests, lionfish,
variety of eels, barracuda, remora, and plentiful reef fish. Steel tanks
are used so reduce weights accordingly. Well run, first class operation -
very enjoyable.
