Stayed a week on St Lucia.  Travel from airport to resort and back was the
only "bumpy" portion of our trip.  Accomodations, food and
service were above average to great!  Diving was controlled and fun but
geared for a beginner to average diver.  Advanced divers would find this
trip somewhat boring although very relaxing.  No large fish, mainly small
tropical and micro life to see/take pictures of. Dive operators at resort
wanted us to have fun and, after seeing we were capable divers, allowed us
to do our thing and left us alone.  There were comments that our group was
among the best/easiest group to deal with.  Only challenging dive, the
second night dive when currents were strong and switched directions
mid-dive.  Main problem, the newer divers in a different group decided to
invade our space and made it difficult to navigate back to shore.  All made
it back without incident but it was challenging...
