Our first time with this operator.  Very crowded boat.  Had to get geared
up in two groups because not enough room.  One group went to the bow out of
the way, while the other group geared up and got in the water.  Very
unstable boat, many on board got sick while gearing up and during the
surface interval.  Very knowledgeable and friendly dive masters.  Beautiful
underwater formations, especially at Second Cathedral.

After second dive with everyone on the boat, a mid-sized whale shark came
by the boat.  The dive master and my wife went in immediately with snorkel
gear, but no luck.
