Guide was very flexible. In fact, he suggested we break the personal depth

The August-September period is VERY hot, and there is nothing to do at
Bohio except dive.  Even the pool was closed for long-term repair.  There
is also nothing happening on Grand Turk, so this is a place to go if you
want to do good diving and heavy-duty relaxing.  In other words, it worked
for me but not as well for my teenage son. 

The beach is very nice but relatively small and deserted.  The resort
advertises shore diving, but the wall is a VERY long swim from shore.  (We
tried to snorkel out, and ultimately gave up.)

The wall is fabulous, and the reef is extraordinarily vibrant and healthy. 
All dives are a very short boat trip away, returning to the resort for your
surface interval.  That is, one tank in the morning, lunch on shore, and
then one tank in the afternoon.

We never had more than 3 divers on the boat, plus the guide.  They readily
agreed to a night dive, even with just 3 of us going.  And there was no set
schedule for dives -- we just agreed what time to meet at the beach.

Managment is going through some changes.  One owner arrived during our
stay, preparing to take over as general manager.  One dive guide was fired
while we were there, and a couple of other people were planning to leave. 
That's probably pretty normal, but the resort should have kept it a little
more hidden from view.

Accomodations were clean but quite spartan.  Ask for a room on the second
floor, since you'll hear every footstep if you are on the bottom floor.

Blackberry worked, and they have Wi-Fi.  Cellular service (Verizon) did not
