Comments Diving was just average. Mary's place was very good, Calvin's Crack was good. Rest of the dives were not special and I resent that they use a boat dive to take you to the Prince Albert when it can be reached so easily from shore. They only took one trip to each of the two dives that were worthwhile. We did encounter a really friendly 6 foot moral eel that fed out of a container held by the dive leader while we were able to stroke it. That was the highlight of the trip. The mkonkeys that allowed you to feed them on the hotel deck were cute so long as you didn't hassle them. I laughed so hard when a woman pushed one that had reached into her purse and the little guy gave her such a shove back. It is a nice trip for beginniers but not especially good for experienced divers. I like boat dives but prefer live-aboards where one can set your own profile and not have to follow the group and come up after 45 minutes.
