Comments Locker facilities are a nice touch right at the boat dock area. Can get crowded when all boats arrive at the same time after a dive. Since most sites are relatively close to the resort, it is nice when the boats come back after each dive to allow a change of batteries, memory card, etc., or just to easily skip or join a dive later. The dive schedule is three dives per day, with a night dive available on Tuesday and Thursday. Some of our group did the shore dive from the key as a night dive, and saw three octopus, numerous lobster. Must do: shark dive, dolphin swim or dive, zip line tour. The down side to the trip was the fact that there is so much to do, you have to decide between skipping a dive or doing another activity. Restaurant wait staff was top notch, as well as all other staff. Kudos to Saul and Marcos, our waiters for the week.
