There was lots of good subject matter except for the large stuff. while
their support facilities were non-existant ( their new to this and just
learning) they were always eager and enthusiastic to oblige in any you
asked. They do need fresh water buckets on the boat and you will need to
bring all the batteries you might need.

The accomidations were new and quite comfortable but the water was turned
off at night, and you were alone in the hotel till morning. They said they
would prepare any type of meals you asked for but we ate their cusine
(which was excelent).
I should mention that they do not have dock as such but they plan to get
one soon. In the meantime you must wade out to the boat.There is also a
problem with the weight limit of 60 lbs. on Pacific Missionary Airlines
which is the only way there from Yap. Not insurmountable but annoying if
you have camera equipment.
This would be a good side trip from Yap if one only wanted to spend a
couple of days there. Several times we dove on sites that no human being,
inclding the divemasters, had seen before. The wreck of the Mississemewa is
not to be missed. Still, it is probably a trip for divers with at least an
intermidiate level of experiance and non-divers will find nothing to do.
The freedom to dive your own profile coupled with the primeval  conditions
was unbeatable!
