We were supposed to be on the Bay Islands Aggressor but since it was taken
out of service we were offered the Laguna Beach Resort.  Factoring in the
the trade-off of liveaboard for land-based, the Laguna Beach Resort was
nice.  The dive boats are uncrowded and would be fine even with a full
house.  The divemasters and boat captains are very accommodating.  Dives
are guided but the divemasters factor in the group's skill set and adjusts.
 There are few fish of any kind and the corals run the gamut from very
healthy and colorful to severely damaged...sometimes at the same site.  We
did see a glimpse of a whale shark, snorkeled with a pod of dolphins and
saw frogfish and seahorses which most folks would think would make the
week.

The staff of Laguna Beach Resort really go all out to serve you.  We
enjoyed our cabin.  The food was tastey but there was not the variety we
have seen at other places.  There were 16 guests (out of 36 capacity) the
week we were there which may explain the variety.

No see-ums are BAD if the wind is not blowing.

Overall impressions - we enjoyed the diving more for the dive teams and the
people on our boat than the underwater sites.  Likely, we would not
return...but we are liveaboard divers and rarely do a land-based dive
vacation.
