Comments  
Our 2-tank boat dive with Dive Safaris were on a newly sunk tug and the
older wreck (barge).  We had 5 people on the dive.  The divemasters were
attentive and were helpful, as were the people in the office (a real change
from the rest of the "friendly island.")  While not the most
exciting dives, we did have fun cruising through the barge (saw a couple of
very large lobsters, a scorpion fish, and lots of small fish) and the newly
sunken tug (even visiting a head).  Not many fish were around, however.  We
very much liked the dive operation (as opposed to our experience with Dive
Mania).
