Comments [None]My regular once a year leisure dive trip since 1991. Always dive with Mitch Rollins of small personal Blue Water Divers and stay with Jenny Hanrahan at Osprey Beach Hotel. Step back into old Caribbean and its old fashioned easily walked waterfront main street. Totally unlike Provo boom-town where the big jets set down 40 miles away. High number repeat divers. Old hands need not worry about cruise ships that stop at isolated northern tip and barely noticeable in evenings at the popular bars. Perfect spot for a couple of mixed ability. February is North Atlantic humpback whale and schooling dolphin season. Protected national park reef offers enough for experienced and a lot for novices.
