Comments They dive the "lost blue hole". It's an interesting dive, but they dive this site several times a week, so if you are diving with them for several days, you will see this site more than once. It is also an hour boat ride to the hole. There were a couple of days where I was the only diver. They took me to reefs that were close by because they knew that I didn't care where, just that there were fish. The dive masters were great at pointing out critters and unusual fish. If you are diving with them for several days, they handle all of your gear and set you up on the boat each morning. The only water that they offered between dives was bottled water that they had for sale. So, if you dive with them, bring your own water and snacks for between dives. They also video the dives. The DVD is for sale at the shop.
