My non-diving mate and I have visited this lovely island 4-5 times thru the
years and each time I have dived regularly with Aquanauts divers. It has
been a pleasure to watch them develop and improve thru the years. They have
become a well run, professional operation that is fun to dive with. The
overall experience is great. The owners, Peter and Gerlinda are very much
in evidence and the staff are capable and fun to be with. DM's Paul and
Bruce have been with them "forever", both are pro's. This trip we
spent three weeks on the island at True Blue Hotel, with me diving roughly
half that time. 3 good boats, clean well equiped, with a head and shower.
   Diving varies from good to very good, with the best sites on the south
(Atlantic) side of the island (not always accessible), but with lots of
interest on the lea side. Wrecks are a big plus here, the King Mitch and
HemaII are excellent dives (south), both at approx 100'. On these the
growth is excellent,  with sightings of sharks, and eagle rays, 4-5 at a
time are usual. They are fairly large (100' +) and fun dives. On the lea
side the famous Bianca C, the largest in the Caribbean at 600' is always
popular. Often the current flows such that you can drift over the entire
wreck, across the rising sand and up slowly on a reef before hitting your
safety stop. Shakum is also popular.  Viz is usually around 35-50' on the
wrecks. Many of the reefs are very healthy, fish numbers are typical
Caribbean, but sightings of interesting life is common, i.e. interesting
sea worms, nudibrancs, baby nurse sharks, juvenile drums, and others. . 
   The overall "package"; the island, hotel, dive operation and
the diving is well worth the effort/cost.
