No photo operation as such, a wet box was on board, and the captain handed
down the camera, but there was no place to get film developed, no repair
facilities. You are on your own. But subject matter abounds.

The accomodations are simple, but there is no view, no beach, no shore
diving to speak of (no coral). However, the diving is superb.
Lots of pelagics, great reef fish, lots of juveniles, varying coral
structure, sea mounts, etc. The lodge is attached to a diving college and
there is a free fish id class given to lodge guests - highly recommended.
And then there are the whale sharks!! We only saw one as the beginning of
August is only the beginning of the season which peaks in September. Prior
to our one shark it had been five weeks since there was a sighting. (dont
go in june or july for whale sharks - arent any) Seeing the gray blotch in
the ocean resolve itself into a whale shark is an awesome sight! snorkeling
with one is even more amazing! Will go back in September for more.
