First of all Negril JA is a vacation destination and not a diving
destination.   However there is decent diving and I always bring my scuba
gear.  There are 3 independent dives ops not counting the all-inclusive
resorts.  I have used them all in the past.  This year I picked Sundivers
because they had the best boat and a real ladder.  Not a wooden thing just
tossed over the side of a glass-bottomed boat.  Sundivers is located
closest to the dive sites so the boat rides were very short and most of the
surface intervals were taken back at the dive center.  The dive masters
knew of less dived sites that did not have a bouy and were not visited by
the all inclusive resorts.  We saw several Hawksbill turtles and a nice
Eagle Ray.  The fish are small due to overfishing but there are lots of
small critters, lobsters and ells to see.  Plenty of swim throughs.  Bottom
times were usually limited to 45 minutes.  Advanced divers may not be
impressed but it is better than anything in Va and I am there on vacation
anyway.
