Comments I spent 4 days diving Lighthouse Bay and the Muiron Islands as part of a package put together by Australian travel agency DivePlanit, The remaining 2 days were spent at the Navy Pier- see separate review. Transfers to the large comfortable boat (complete with head and sundeck) were included in the price, as were cookies and cake between the first and second dives and a lunch of wraps, cold cuts and fruit on the way back. Boat rides were long (1.75 hours each way to the Muirons, less to Lighthouse Bay) and we had rough conditions all but one day. Maybe it was the conditions that led them to repeat sites - no explanation was offered - but we went to the exact same 2 places over the 4 days. They rotated guides and while all were competent safety- wise, only one pointed out much of anything. ... Subscribe to get the full story.
