Comments First trip to the Brac, Had a great week. Weather was perfect, calm seas all week, had a little current on some dives. Reef divers could not have been better. Valet diving not to be beat. Saw a variety of sea life, turtles on almost every dive. Resort is a little dated but very clean and comfortable. Food was buffet style and very good. Service was excellent from all phases(dining room, bar, front desk etc.) I left my wallet in the room and they emailed me before I arrived home.
The dive boats are set up nicely, plenty or room even with a crowded boat. For four of the pm dives we had less than 6 people on the boat. Very nice. Did 17 dives for the week. The Tibbets wreck is a nice and easy dive. Special shout out to Barb and Jeff though all DMs were excellent. Did nitrox certification while there and was a bargain, pay for course and dive free nitrox the rest of the week. Went to Bloody Bay Wall one morning. Very good diving for new and experienced divers. Highly recommend it. Saw eagle rays on numerous dives. Vis was very good 100 ft on most dives. Very diversified dive sites, walls, chutes, wrecks, etc. Will go again,
