We brought a new diver down to the Keys to do check-out dives someplace
other than a quarry.  We were very pleased with both Divers City and Ocean
Pointe Suites.  Divers City has one boat that takes no more than 10 divers.
 We never had more than 6.  Given that there were newbies on the boat, Bob
and Barbara did their best to take us to sites where the advanced divers
would be able to wander and see some critters while the new divers were
doing skills.  On our drift dives, we were allowed to remain under while
the instructor took the new folks back to the surface.  Saw sharks on three
out of four days and were stalked by large remoras on one dive.  Visibility
ok.  Dive on the Duane was great.  Lots of fish life.  Wish we did Nitrox
on this one -- the dive was way too short.  Ocean Pointe Suites is just a
couple miles up the road from Divers City.  Free continental breakfast
every AM was a nice bonus.  Had a full kitchen to eat at home and save
money for the diving.  No need for an ocean view suite, we had an island
view that had the water as well.
