This is all about wreck diving.  You are diving the nuclear fleet sunk by
the US Gov in 1946 with the Able and Baker nuclear tests.  You learn a ton
of history and do two planned deco dives to approx 170 ft each day on a
whole series of wrecks including an aircraft carrier and two battleships. 

The dive operation is run expertly.  They are very diligent in this far
corner of the world to care for the divers visiting.  Follow their
instructions above and below the water for a good time.  Don't and it's a
very dangerous place to be.  

Getting there and getting out is chancy so plan a couple of days coming and
going in Majero as flights to Bikini run when they want.  This is the
opitomy of island time and coconut telegraph :).
