Reef Gliders is owner operated  a professional, friendly, laid back dive
shop.  All dives are right out the back of the shop and most are within 5 
10 minutes by boat.  The boats carried a maximum of 10 divers, including
guides.  Everyone was really nice, helpful.  They sent out one guide
(instructors or divemasters) for each 3 divers and sometimes several small
groups would go together on the boat but dive separate areas, this always
worked out perfectly.  Some dives were done with the boat moored but many
were gentle drifts through reef channels and along walls.  The water is a
crystal turquoise blue, the air temps were 80˚  86˚F
with sunny days and light island breezes.  Not as much fish life as I
expected for a marine preserve.  Colorful Caribbean reef fish, banded coral
shrimp, porcupine fish, porgy, spotted eels, big green moray eels, lots of
lobster, channel king crab, box crab, neck crab, arrow crab in colorful
fields of coral, anemones, a variety of sponges, sea feathers and sea fans.
 We saw hawksbill turtles, eagle rays, nudibranchs, lizardfish, octopus,
toadfish, and fireworms.  On the trips back and forth in the boat we
sometimes saw large schools of silvery fish jumping and flipping at the
surface, flying fish, and a couple of times we saw Anthonys Keys dolphins
out for a romp.  Also dove Anthonys Key Resort  specifically to dive with
their dolphins.  The dolphin swim and snorkel is better.   Dove with Subway
Watersports at Marys Place, good outfit, divemaster opted not to take us
thru tempting channels as two of the group did not have good buoyancy. 
Stayed at Hidden Garden Cabins, clean, secure, good value.  Sand flies and
mosquitoes easily deterred with DEET; bugs were much worse on other side of
the island.  I ate with caution and had no problems; only ate salads,
fruit, etc at restaurants that the dive shop recommended  great food, good
prices.  Cooked foods good everywhere.  Other divers were not as fortunate,
about half I met had some gastro-intestinal upsets during their vacations.
