Comments the good: the dive personnel was OK and tried to please the divers; saw a turtle, no shark, few tropical fishes, lionfish, lg. green eel, sm. lobster

the bad: my new 5 mil wet suit was bulky; the seas were choppy; got sorta sea sick; no refund on 2nd, missed dive

misc.: food had high prices: ~ $15 for breakfast; about $12 for lunch; expensive dinner ( ~ $25 USD) unless just salad; all not bad tasting.

Bed and Breakfast was a lie ( no breakfast at B&B); warm weather was great in dead of winter; but. there are better dive destinations
