Ladies will feel more comfortable in muumuus or longer skirts (cooler than
clingy pants, shorts on women are frowned upon outside the resort.) Fans
worked wonderfully well at keeping us comfortable. Bring bug spray;
spacious, open (screened) hand built bungalows among mangrove and palms no
further than 50 ft. from high tide mark. Very simple boats are slow, making
for a smoother ride, boats docked at whichever area we were going to dive
next, thereby avoiding long rides, we were chauffered by van to the
marinas. Gear handled with care by staff. Incredible hard coral landscapes.
A group of very mixed skill levels, during our week no more than 3 divers
at a time with 2 or 3 staff. A soon as staff realized we had a buddy pair
(?) of photographers extra staff was added. Custom nitrox blends, never
less than 2990 psi. Something for all levels of divers.  Excellent mooring
system, boat follows DM's float. Service and food at the resort were
outstanding. Make sure you plan on going to church on Sunday to hear the
singing. O2 and cell phones on boat. Plenty of water and tea and good
lunches provided between dives, very good surface intervals.  Lime juice
provided on return each day. I felt safer diving with this crew than almost
anywhere I've been. This is diving as it used to be, pristine corals. Not a
lot of larger fish, but good diversity.
