Vieques was great.  Nan-Sea Charters was a big part of the good time we

This was our first time in Vieques.  We rented a wonderful ocean front
apartment, Miramar, which is one of several wonderful apartments that is
the Evamer property, overlooking Vieques' north coast.  Most of our time
though was spent a few miles across the island in and around Esperanza,
described at "Key West 1952."  Maybe; it certainly has a fun
vibe.  Very good food scene there and nice ocean front strollway
(Malecòn)  The former Naval bombing range which is the eastern half
of Vieques is now mananged by US Federal Fish and Wildlife.  Rent your jeep
and visit immaculate, unpopulated, stunning beaches when you're not diving,
visiting galleries, eating at food trucks or foodie worthy restaurants. 

Mark and Rooster recently took over Nan-Sea Charters.  They provided one of
the best dive operations experiences we've had over twenty+ years of
diving.  Their boat holds only 6 divers.  The two of us were the only
divers half the 4 days, 2 dives/day.  Most sites were less than 10 minutes
from the dock.  Rental BCs, regs, computers were all new.  Typical
Caribbean stuff, though never before saw as large areas of grass eels or
areas with a score or so of yellow-headed jawfish bobbing out of their
holes, which might be an indicator of the good health of the area reefs.

After a very short attempt to keep Nan-Sea Charters going, Mark and Rooster
sold the business to Vieques Dive Company.
