We dove ea site as a group w/the DM providing the plan & diving w/the
group.  He tapped his tank to point out things of interest.  Some dives
were drift (the current was very light), & some were guided.  While
they offered a max depth, we often exceeded. We went our own way once and
trailed a buoy.

We took an early flight from Newark, NJ and after a reasonable layover in
Miami, arrived at 11 am local time.  This was nice, as we had most of the

us at the airport, handling our bags from immigration to our room, and
