Depth guidelines were given about where we would see the most life.  No
babysitting, but most of us followed the dive guide because they knew where
to find all the most exciting creatures.

Special room just for cameras.  220v and 110v both available.  Clean towels
always available, and lots of counter space to spread out your equipment. 
Special tub on shore just for cameras.  When you have your camera all ready
to go you place it in the tub, and somehow it always makes it to your boat!
 Dive staff is very respectful of your equipment and treats it as if it
were their own.  When boat returns to shore they return your cameras to the
tub, ready for you to prepare for next dive.  It is a great set up.

This is my second trip in one year.  I took a large group in 2006 and we
all absolutely loved it.  This year I went back with a group of 14, and no
one was disappointed.  We had 4 repeat travelers.

I think this is the absolute best operation I have visited in all my
travels.  The staff is the best in the business, both at the resort and on
the boats.  Most of them remembered us from last year and addressed us by
our first names.  It was like coming home.  We had a pretty boisterous
group, and as the staff got to know us better, they became involved in all
our antics.  I will warn you that once you have been here you will forever
compare your service and personality to this operation, both diving and

The diving is exceptional.  I only note above that the diving is a
"4" for inexperience divers only because buoyancy is a must. 
There are lots of scorpion fish and other strange creatures beneath the
sand, and you don't want to land on one!  You will find the weirdest things
on the bottom of this strait!  I never thought I would get tired of seeing
pygmy seahorses, frog fish, cuttlefish, octopus, or eels, but you get so
spoiled after a while that you actually do.
