The diving was typical of the Indo-Pacific.  The day boats were comfortable
and sufficiently large.  The divemasters were overly directive and spent a
great deal of time pointing things out to the group.  Solo diving was
fortunately allowed with an independent air source (pony tank).  The crew
was excellent and helpful.  The accomodations and food were both superb. 
Logistics were well organized and no hassle.  No large pelagics and few
small animals, allow the coral was pristine and crinoids plentiful.
