Given basic dive profile and told to be on the boat with around 500 psi. 
Guided dive available but not required.  Lots of freedom. To their credit
they are very conservation oriented.  A lot of reminders to not touch or
harrass the coral and critters.

Very helpful and cooperative with all types of photographers.  Allowed
photographers a lot of freedom to do their own thing, but were more than
willing to point out hard to find photo subjects if you wanted to stay with
the guided tour.  Separate photo ice chest rinse to keep cameras in.

Incredible diving.  Best in the Caribbean.  Saw reef sharks almost every
dive.  Sharks swam right by us regularly.  Beautiful!   Turtles feeding and
swimming about.  Stingrays everywhere.   Large fish every dive as well as
an abundance of small fish and critters.  Water is cooler - we rented
shorty suits and wore them over our lycra.  First dive the boat was
overcrowded, but Provo Turtle Divers corrected the situation the next day. 
Very informative Dive Masters with great guided dives.  Really liked their
conservation attitude!  They want to protect their reefs and aren't shy
about telling you to keep your hands off and leave the critters alone.  Bus
picks you up at your resort and delivers you home again.  Leave your gear
on the boat each day - they wash it and hang it to dry and then have it set
up for you on the boat the next day.  We usually had to set up our own gear
on the 2nd dive, but overall the crew was very helpful.  Lots of good
snacks on board for divers and a variety of juices along with water.  We'll
be back!
