Comments I live here and dive every week. I rarely see anything in print about diving on the north side of the island. North side diving is excellent when trade winds are not blowing, usually March or April through September-November. Treelodge and Nautilus both routinely dive on the north side. If you are willing to dive in moderate to strong current, then you are very likely to see at least a few sharks & barracuda on pretty much every dive. If someone in the group is not comfortable in current, then "big critters" are less likely. Dolphins are often seen in the summer months along the north-northeast side, they will play with the boat--includes spinning dolphins.

The hotels vary in style from thatched roofed local style houses, cottages in the mangroves, to a modest, but extremely clean and pleasant 16 room hotel. The three main hotels all have restaurants now. No spectacular food, but you won't be here for the food.
