Peter Island offers world-class service and excellent meals.  This is a
grat resort with beautiful beaches.  Diving in the BVIs is very good-
waters are part of a protected underwater park.

Diving was very relaxed and divemasters took care of tank changes and
carried and set-up equipment in the mornings.   Coral conditions were
actually much better than expected- coral is quickly recovering from latest
Caribbean bleaching event.  In the first 2 dives, I was the only diver in
the boat.   Saw eagle rays, large stingrays, lobsters, turtles, a large 4'
cobia, tunicates a-plenty, clinging crabs, jawfish, and the usual Caribbean
reef fish, including queen triggerfish.

For those looking for a pampered diving vacation with excellent service,
great meals and superb beaches, look no further!  And Randy Keil's (dive
shop owner) enthusiasm for diving is truly contagious.
