This resort is all about photography.  They plan all dives around getting
the best photo opportunities.  They have camera ROOMS, not tables, and 4
LARGE rinse tanks for camera gear only.  These guys do photography right!

This place never ceases to amaze me.  Every trip is like going home again.
The staff, from the GM to the maint. workers, go out of their way to insure
everyone has the very best experience possible.  The food, the bar, the
dive staff, the boat crews, the rooms...I am comfortable stating that this
place is one of the best resorts I have ever experienced.  The divemasters
will do whatever it takes to find exactly whatever critter you want, every
time.  I hate to sound like a broken record, but I really can't say enough
good things about the Water Village.
