I wish I had known before hand how great the diving was there.  Would have
taken more film.  Pigmy seahorses, Ghost Pipefish, Scorpion Leaffish, and
many more.  Guides delight in pointing out the macro stuff.  It has to be
one of the greatest dive spots I have ever experienced.  The reefs are
alive and teaming with soft corals, sponges, and reef fish.   It costs a
little more than most, but when you look at what you get, it is well worth
it.  This is one dive resort that everyone must dive at least once in their
lifetime.  I guess it would be best to do it last because if you do it
first, all others will pale in comparison.  Definitely a "Do
Again" place.
