[Boat captains and divemasters very responsive to photographers. All boats
have camera rinse tanks and space for cameras.  If you are on a boat with a
lot of photographers, you may need to ask for an extra rinse tank to be
brought on board, our requests have always been honored]

[This is my eighth annual visit, which qualifies me as a
"coconut", you qualify after 5 visits.  The accomodations, while
not luxurious, are quite comfortable and clean.  Food is generous and
served buffet style.  Not gourmet, but prepared well, with a couple of
options for lunch and dinner...you won't go away hungry.  Adjacent to the
dining area is the bar, with friendly service and reasonable prices.  You
run a tab on the honor system and then settle your account at the end of
your stay.  Dive operations are very well set up, with plenty of bottles,
whether air or Nitrox, and good solid 3000 psi fills.  Boat operations are
run very well, good divemasters and captains, comfortable and easy on and
off.  Responsive to photographers needs and know how to handle camera rigs.
 The diving itself is decent, great if you are a macro critter
photographer, but so so for larger creatures.  If you are looking for
pelagics or big fish, the diving here will disappoint.  Damage from last
year's earthquake still very evident underwater both on the walls/corals
and the "house wreck", the Prince Albert.  Why do divers come
here year after year?  Very comfortable boat, drop-off and shore diving
along with a dive resort that treats divers well.  Many
"coconuts" come for repeat visits as part of large groups/dive
clubs, like my group...so individual divers need to make an effort to
engage.  Don't forget your bug repellant...good idea to spray often,
particularly after removing your wetsuit at the dive lockers.  Am I coming
back?  Already have a trip booked for next year!]
