Comments [None]Dove with a large educational group in early November. Conditions were great. Occasional showers but mostly sun and steady breezes. Divi hotel is a great spot for our group - studio rooms with kitchens are very nice and adjacent to the dive dock. Food is good and plentiful. Facilities for classes are good as well. Short walk into town for shopping and meals.
Shore diving at resort and elsewhere is excellent. Reefs are in fabulous shape with healthy corals both soft and hard. Small critters superb - seahorses, frogfish, juveniles, turtles and eels. No large stuff. Few lionfish. Dive operation solid with good people and generally good service. They are not "valet" diving however and divers assemble/remove/rinse all their own gear. Storage lockers on dock avoid dragging gear to the room every day. Tanks available 24-7. They did under-staff one night boat dive and a couple of our divers got lost. Frightening but no harm. This is a great destination for novice and experienced divers.
