We arrived the day after hurricane Rita went through, so probably alters
opinion of diving.  We missed one day of diving due to waves and current. 
The next day, current still a factor.  Several of us had to swim against
the current to get back to the boat as the current swept us past the boat. 
The dive boat does not have a tender to come and get you.  Hang onto a
mooring ball and after everyone else is aboard, they will come and get you.
 Some sites had limited vis, as little as 5 ft. At most, we had 35 ft.,
again due to the hurricane.  The Speigel Grove had no current at the time
we dove.  Majority of divers aboard voted to do two dives on the SG instead
of changing to a shallower dive which risked current, surge and/or
decreased vis. so the boat moved from bow to stern for second dive. They do
the SG twice a week.  Night dives are twice a week on the Benwood. Rinse
tub for gear at rental locker. Gear locker available for those staying at
resort. Needs more hangers and/or hooks.  
Accomodations vary from room to room. My room was more like a suite with an
extra room and a large bathroom. Small refrigerator and microwave, table
and chairs in room. Continental breakfast consists of assorted bagels and a
toaster, jellies, peanut butter, OJ and coffee. For breakfast and lunch,
best bet is to go to Winn Dixie about a mile down the road and get
groceries.  Dinners at assorted area restaurants. Grills available on site
for guests to use.  3 kayaks available for guests for no charge.  Nice
When there was a problem with my room after hours, Kat came out at midnight
and gave us a different room to sleep in until the problem could be taken
care of.  We were able to go back to our original room the next day.  Rooms
were maintained well.
