Comments Flamingo Divers is probably the best land based dive operation I have dove with. It is a small operation that takes a maximum of eight divers. The boat is clean and will orgainized. Mickey and Jayne are very pleasant to be with and really try to be sure you have a good experience. They do a very good job in leading the dives and letting you enjoy your self. I highly recommend this operation. The Sands at Grace Bay is an excellent facility. The condos are well maintained and spacious. The grounds are beautiful and it is located directly on Grace Bay. It has daily maid service. The onsite restaurant is a good place to eat and is in the same price range of most of the good restaurants. For a change of pace, try the Conch Shack. It is a good drive out of town, but is worth it if you like conch.
