Comments This is easy diving. Great for beginners, but not impressive. We would not have dove here if Peter Hughes had not pulled their boat out of Grenada after we made our booking. The recession seems to have hit this destination pretty hard. Not a lot of divers, unless there is a cruise ship in port, but you dive while you're here, you don't go here to dive. The dive operation was friendly, but not overly concerned with operating on time. Bring your own water/snacks for the dive interval. Backroll entry, ladder exit. Rental gear looked okay if you're looking to avoid airline weight restrictions. Most interesting dive was the underwater sculptures. The hotel is spacious, with lots of rooms with ocean views, but not well maintained. (The safes in the most of the rooms didn't work, the entire hotel was out of shampoo, lights were out in the stairwell to our room, lobby staff inept.)
