Shot both video and still. Land facility's were excellent, with seperate
rinse tanks, a dry room with work stations for working on cameras with
transformers and both 110v & 200v recepticles. Computers and
televisions for digital. They accomodated my still photo's with E-6 drop
off each day in town. No facility on boats for cameras.

I found the dive and resort staff to be among the most accomodating I have
ever found in my travels.  The rooms were very comfortable and the food was
great with many choices 

The diving here does not lend itself to big animals, but the diversity of
animals is incredible. Frog fish, pipefish, flambuoyant cuddlefish, mantis
shrimp, ribbon eels and tons of variety.  Best to think macro when
photographing here, but then again some of the frog fish are the size of
cats. Only negative was the lack of accomodation for cameras on the boats.

On one afternoon I was the only diver and they did not hesitate to take me
out for two dives. Long travel, but well worth the effort.
