each resort had a wash area/bin for gear and seperate for cameras, gear
setup area was also OK. Water entry was quiet when I was there. BUT with a
bit of wind or surge could be a real challenge with camera gear.

Again an excellent arrangement with Aqua Marine Diving for my own driver,
dive guide (who was great), van w/diving reading material & airco,
tanks & weights.  I could stay at any priced accomadation I wished and
do as many or few dives daily as I felt like.  Good driver knew how long it
would take to various areas and drove carefully.  All the AMD staff speak
good english and are very knowledgable about the diving conditions,
critters you are likely to see, helping with gear, great at finding good
photo subjects.  In all a real pleasure and very good value for my money
and very good value diving. Different from all my other Indonesia travels. 
Large variety of fishes, big schools of jacks, lots of color, small corals
with good bottom cover.  Very pretty site.
I'm not into shore diving, but this was easy and great dives.  I'll go back
