Comments My dive buddy and I organized a group trip of 60 people. We took up 3 dive boats and 35 rooms of the resort. The resort and dive op did an excellent job of managing a group of this size. The rooms were clean and comfortable the food was superb and plentiful. Especially the dessert bar. The staff at the bar were always smiling and were very efficient. The entire booking process ( very large group) was seemless and efficient.

UW Photo Comments no rinse tank on the boat but they did have a fresh water hose to rinse the cameras and a dedicated camera table. The dive team took excellent care when handling cameras. The rinse tanks on at the dive shop were black and sitting directly in the sun on some days the water was actually hot.
