Most of the divers were very experienced and could handle the currents but
a few were not that experienced and it was tough on them. Should be
forwarned the currents are not for the inexperienced. 
Greatest number of fish I have ever seen. It was crowded down there. I
jested that we could see more if there weren't so many fish in the way. 
I would go again in a minute. Side trips from there, India, Sri Lanka,
Emerates. One in our group is planing to move there and start a dive
operation with one of our divemasters. This place is a wonderment.
