Comments This is no place for beginners only advanced divers. Deco dives every day & two a day. The staff and crew are excellent. The a/c is the best and rooms are basic but clean. If you don't bring it you won't find it here. Rest in between dives. Lots of jelly fish and tons of sharks, so no shore diving unless you are on the menu. Beautiful beach and sites. The Saratoga is caving in, but their are several other good wrecks. Personally if I had it to do over again I would spend more time on Truk. However, if you are a war ship person and many are, this is still a great, though Deco Dangerous place to dive.
