Comments [None] The Tourist Police were more harassing than I had ever seen. The Island Police were super and great to visit with.
Ruby's is a super place to stay...rustic and very accomidating and comfortable sleeping and rooms, primative, but very nicely priced, air conditioned rooms were great and the shower pressure was the best.
Aqua Divers wasn't bad. We had our own divemaster George whom I had met in Utila 4 years ago. he was awesome and a super guide . he did great dive brielfings and was genuinely interested in all the divers in our group. Some of the other dive masters and boat captains the took us to the Blue Hole and Light house were bordering on rude and were not interested in any of the divers in the group...they basically did their job and nothing more.
Woring with the dive shop and Ruby's setting up the trip was fantastic and very helpful...i would bring a copy of the arrangements made to the dive shop. Ruby's just has great people all around
