Comments Stayed at the Carlisle Bay over Thanksgiving 2018. Resort - was great. Awesome food and service, would even make off the menu orders. Nice child care for infants and up. Expensive but worth it.

Dive operator - they are not on site but, they pick you up by boat at the resort dock with all of your gear already on the boat after the first day. So, if you need to be by your stuff to get help or ask questions, it is a little more work. Very friendly and accommodating staff. Max 12 divers per boat, 6 person groups based on experience/ability.

Diving - November is the tail end of hurricane season so the ocean was a little rough (6 - 8 foot swells, few sea sickness causalities) and there were some occasional currents on the bottom (2 - 3 knots). Max depth we did all week was 60 feet. So, good diving for novice to intermediate divers. Would be even better a little more into peak season. Your usual cast of characters yellow tails, novice grouper, puffer, rays, lobsters, occasional turtles. Lots of grey reef sharks. Saw them on every dive and they followed the group waiting for a lion fish culling (which was done).
