Comments The Introduction briefing is a put you to sleep talk.! Almost an hour of grocery store and shopping talk and the diving..other than that, the experience was fantastic! The food is great and the diving is awesome. the storage facilities need definate work and the gear room could use some opening to allow shore diving more easily. The dive tanks on the dock were easily accessable and night diving took minimal planning...just rememeber to get your gear out of the gear room before 4:30. :) The rooms were great, no air conditioning except for the bedrooms. the screened in back porch was fantasic for sitting in the evenings enjoying the breezes off the ocean. overall a most enjoyable trip and I would definately recommend Sand Dollar to anyone
