Reporter and Travel

Dive Experience Over 1000 dives
Where else diving About everywhere.
Closest Airport Routan airport, 20 min by shuttle Getting There Delta. No problems. American, United others also go there.

Dive Conditions

Weather sunny, dry Seas calm, no currents
Water Temp 82 to 83 Fahrenheit Wetsuit Thickness
Water Visibility 50 to 100 Feet

Dive Policy

Dive own profile yes
Enforced diving restrictions All divers need to demonstrate basic skills: Mask removal and clearing underwater, regulator retrieval, buddy breathing. Done by having everyone jump off the boat (at the dock) in 10 feet of water and 1:1 with dive master. Not a bad idea for large operation with lots of customers / week.
Liveaboard? no Nitrox Available? yes

They then seemed to segregate divers according to experience and requests. Makes everyone happier.
The actual diving was what you would expect. Good Caribbean warm water, calm, and physically easy diving. Several types of dive boats but all with easy ladders. Boat facilities included sunshades or roofs, drinking water, some type of camera table, emergency oxygen, marine radio. No heads on our boat. Dive routine was to leave dock at 8:00 after breakfast, travel 5 to 20 minutes, moor on established buoy, dive for an hour and then surface ... Subscribe to get the full story.
