Magnificent profusion of colors. 

Every dive was a magnificent profusion of colors, teeming with healthy
corals, sponges, critters & fish.  One dive was so congested with
living creatures, that it caused a fish jam. We had to stop to give them
the right of way.  It reminded me of rush hour on the california freeways! 
Diving these waters truly sets the paradigm for all warm water diving.  
Alas, the same cannot be said for the resort, which came with a high price
tag for the week and was devoid of most creature comforts. Bottom line: if
you are a dive warrior who enjoys 5+ dives per day and has no use for:
reading lights, fresh towels, room ventilation, trash pick-up, enough food
at each meal for everyone to get a first helping of each dish, brewed
coffee that doesn't cost an additional $1 per cup, you will love this
place.








tful coral, sponge, critters, all in excellent health.   Ty and
