Setup on the big dive boat "Prowler" had ample room.  Setup on
the smaller boats was cramped.

The "Good" is the amount of things to photograph.  On the first 3
dives I observed a rare Hairy Ghost Pipefish, two varieties of pigmy
seahorses, leaf scorpionfish, a crocadile fish, all the normal reef fish
and a promise that it would get better.  The "Bad" would be the
small dive boats.  With 4 divers and a 3 man crew, they are crowded. Tawali
is a new resort that is situated on the side of a hill overlooking a reef. 
There are many things for non divers to keep occupied with.  This is
another dive spot I would highly recommend.
