I love this place. The diving is varied, tongue and groove, swim throughs,
very clear water, knowledegable dive guides.Protected waters, no taking.
The captains are somewhat accomodating. One day we drove out East to Maple
Leaf a fantastic, large tongue and groove formation dive site. Turtles,
eagle rays lots of eels and lobsters but millions of sea whisps, fans and
other filterers..
After dives there  are many different beaches to explore and some nice
restaurants. Check out Lime Inn.
This is a great place for someone with a spouse or partner that doesn't
dive. Boat gets back around 12:30 or 1:00 PM.
