Huge rinse buckets on all boats. Crew understand how to handle expensive

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.
