Comments Would bring my own gear instead of renting next time. Took a little getting used to the "European" metric gauges but no problems. Drift dives were quite different from what I am used to. Reef is far from shore. GPS was needed to find exact location. We rode out in a Zodiac which can be bumpy if the sea is choppy. Reef was deeper than I'm used to in most Carribean destinations. I usually like to do a shallow "check-out" dive as my first outing but we went to almost 40 meters every dive as the norm. Wandered the reef until one of us hit 50 bar. Headed for the top of the reef and finished in about 20 meters until it was time for our safety stop. Went into Deco once but had plenty of air to work my way out of it without problems. Fun dives and lots of new and different fish life. Would do it again and will if I have a chance! Dive operator very capable, friendly and professional. Highly recommended if you like agressive but fun diving. Advanced level recommended.
