Reefs were in very poor condition. Lots of brown algae. We seen several
large and one huge loggerhead turtles which kept us interested. Several
large parrot fish and a few other tropicals, not much else. 

We dove with many other divers of varing skill and experince levels.
Currents were strong and divers would getting strung out over a large area.
The captin seemed skilled and fairly careful. Only once did I wondor if we
would get picked up. Other crew seemed inexperianced and did little to
keeps things managable. We dove two days with this shop and was very
disappointed in that we dove the same dive sights both days. We were told
we could dive some of the many wrecks in the area but could not do so with
all of novice divers on board. we our diving short because of the poor
service for advanced divers. 

Staff at the shop itself were not helpful and very unfriendly.
