Just returned to the snow from 4 days of diving in Key Largo.  We stayed at
Amy Slatess Amoray Diver resort.  What a great time!  The motel itself is
spread out over the property, with two docks, a small pool, beach and a
Tiki bar. We stayed in a standard room (2 queen beds) fridge, coffee maker
and microwave.  The room was clean and recently redecorated.  The beds were
firm and conformable.  The road noise was excessive with the windows open,
but not detectable once the windows were closed.

The diving was from their main boat (a large Cat).  The trip to the reefs
was quick despite being on the sound side of the Key.  The Captains and
mates were helpful and fun. Both mates were PADI instructors.   The boat
was in excellent condition, as were the tanks, weights and belts.  I
requested 100 CuFt. tanks with nitrox (personal preference, not required
for these reefs) and was please to have them delivered each morning to the
boat.  A wet storage locker is located next to the rinse tank (perhaps 10
yards from the dock). 

The dive boat is large with 5 exits, and two large ladders for returning to
the boat.  On one day we had a group of 8 open water students, as well as
10 other divers; still lots of room on the boat.  Water and fruit on board.
 Dry space is limited, so be considerate.

Recommendations:  Book in advance and dont hesitate to make special
requests.  The front office staff is helpful and knowledgeable about food
and drink in the area.  The boat crews 1st rate and the reefs have an
amazing array of life.
