Comments I love this place! It's very remote, no other resorts or businesses, or homes are anywhere near it. They are alone on their island. The diving is spectacular with life covering every inch of the substrate. The resort is comfortable and the food is varied, abundant, and excellent. The owners are incredibly friendly and welcoming. The boat is comfortable and even has an elevator to lift you out of the water. If you love cold water diving you can't go wrong with this place. The dive sites are all wonderful, and full of invertebrates, fish, and anemones. Lots of jellyfish too. Just an amazing abundance of things to see.

UW Photo Comments There was alot to take pictures of, and at the resort plenty of places to spend time processing photos. There is not a lot of space on the boat for camera gear. No specialized area, and the rinse tank is small.
