Comments  
ScubaAqua is a good dive operation.  Their facility is small at this time
but they are working on a new location just down the road that will more
than triple the size of their current facility.  All the dive-masters
(especially Dave)  and instructors were great.  

In addition to diving there is a lot of US History on this island.
