Comments I was diving there after a stay in Bikini, and I was probably spoiled...
Every dive (total of 9) was lead by Jerry (owner of the dive shop)..He dives with twin tanks (why?? it is not technical diving..). We dove inside the lagoon and outside. The coral reef was in very good shape and we saw lots of coral fish, napoleons, white tip sharks, ray etc. There were also some interesting walls, some times with currents...
It is fun to dive with Jerry, but he is quite relaxed and pays not too much attention to the divers. Was fine with me, but we had a japanese guy on one dive who got into trouble and the response was quite slow...

The Hotel is nice (I had a bungalow), with ok food...pickup by boat at the Hotel Pier. We did 2 dives a day with 1 h surface interval and lunch box supplied by the dive shop.

I believe Majuro is a good ad-on to trip to Bikini, and gives time to relax ... and it is worth to do after the long travel to the Marshalls..
