Fish n Fins land based operation was great.  Even though we had the edge of
a bad storm in the area, they carefully monitored the weather and we were
able to go out to Blue Corner the last day, and make good dives every other
day.  It would have been simpler for them to just say hey bad weather we
can't go to Blue Corner. We dove German Chanel at a non crowded time of day
and were treated to the incredible show of two each 19 foot wingspan manta
rays circling 25 feet above us for almost 15 minutes.  This was on our
third visit to German Chanel.  The first dive there was exciting, but to
see the mantas was breathtaking.

I loved the dive in Chandiler cave later one afternoon (after our normal 2
tank boat dive).  We made a Nautilus dive early one morning, it was very
interesting.  Fish'nFins went out of their way to meet the wants and needs
of almost every diver on the boat.  When they had two beginners on the boat
one day, we dropped them off with an instructor and went on to do our more
exciting and challenging dive site, and picked them up after our full
excitement 2 tank dives.  Don't miss snorkeling in jellyfish lake.

Fish n Fins is very enviromentally responsible in that you drink all
beverages out of your reusable small hard plastic water bottle they
provide.  Also every meal is served in a ultra clean reusable food
container type tray, which they collect and reuse the next day.  I didn't
see one piece of styrofoam or other paper cup type trash generated on the
boats.  I don't normally notice or remember the taste of food when I'm on a
dive vacation (I generally don't think it's that important)--however the
luches they provided on our surface intervals at nearby islands were very

We saw lots of big sharks, the divemaster pointed out interesting small
critters.  They met my request to make a dive on a WWII wreck.  They helped
me to solve an annoying intermittent free flow problem with my octopus. 
Great customer service, all divers loved their operation.
