Comments The people were the best. Divemasters, the owner(Debbie) and the island people were all very accomodating and cheerful, and made our stay very pleasant. The other divers (there were not very many) were very personable and we spent lots of time together. One couple had come down before us to learn and certify on site. Four days into their stay, when we got there, they were very confident and comfortable in the water and had a wonderful learning experience with Dave (the divemaster) The accomodations were basic, but comfortable. Everyone on the island was friendly. There is no crime, and you are safe to walk or bike anywhere on the island, at any time of day or night. Though it is a bit far removed from civilization - there were several places where you could get excellent food and good companionship. All in all, it was a wonderful experience.
