Dive Policy

Dive own profile no
Enforced diving restrictions The boat dives were a slow follow the leader profile. Ok if you had 10 to 30 open water dives. I found them very confining. Wall dives (these are not deep walls) were unrestricted.
Liveaboard? no Nitrox Available? yes

Comments Very laid back resort, staff very friendly. Limited food variety and meal times. There was about a 1 1/2 hour window for breakfast, lunch and dinner; all buffet style. Food plentiful but not too exciting. Shorts & T shirts appropriate for dinner, nice bar.

Great place for someone to learn how to dive. My girlfriend completed her PADI open water certification in about 6 days; Patty (the instructor, not the cert agency) is a great instructor.

Diving is all inclusive with both morning and afternoon dive trips, shore diving available 24 hours a day. Very easy to swim out to the wall and take off in either direction. A great place if you want to "log" a lot of dives.

WiFi available in the dining room.
