Separate rinse bucket for cameras. Some interesting critters but water
conditions made for difficult picture taking.

Facilities at Cane Bay are nice. Everything is available for rent or
purchase. Staff is friendly and helpful. Our divemaster, Kendall, was very
helpful. His dive briefing was extensive and through. It got a bit long but
since we had a fairly new diver in our group it was probably needed.

Shore dive involved a walk across the street and then down to the water.
Entry was easy and surf and surge was not a factor. Exit was at the same
location with no issues.

The dive itself was good. Visibility was fair. Corals on the wall were
impressive. Wildlife on the wall was surprisingly sparse. 

Two seahorses were spotted, one manmade (a carosel horse). Only one small
turtle. One of the divers spotted a scorpionfish which was posing for a
picture.

Overall a good dive. The view down the wall from 90 feet was impressive
even with the poor visibility.
