Profesional all the way. Very accomodating for me as a single diver. All
briefings by the 3 different divemasters were excellent. Scheduling via
their tollfree phone was hassle free and when I had to change my plans it
was no problem.
Anchor Dive Center offers two morning and afternoon dives daily. Because
they are located in Salt River National Park they offer: 
Free parking that is 20 yards from the boat(fully equipped Coast Guard
certified); 5-15 minute boat rides to the most requested dive sites;
Surface intervals on shore with restaurant(closed on Monday) &
restrooms on premises.
If you book a dive package they offer a complimentary Kayak Eco-Tour of the
Salt River area. It makes for an educational and fun surface stop (1/2 day)
