Comments Very good diving. Reefs on the east end are in great shape. The operation is top notch. Friendly crew. One of the divemasters even let us use his own car for a day trip into Georgetown. We saw several sharks...some upclose and personal...very cool. Swam with a school of about 20 tarpon. Large school of silversides in a swim thru. The sites we dove were all only about 15-20 minutes from the dock. A digital camera comes along on all AM dives and 6-8 pictures are posted on the resort website every day so your friends can see you diving with the sharks. They also can send you envious emails which you can retrieve on the resort computer....fun. It was somewhat choppy at times and a couple of people got seasick during the week. (My scopolamine patch worked great for me). You don't touch your gear all week. Everything is set up for you including rinsing your gear at the end of each day. We were spoiled all week. The food is to die for. Chef Julia fixed dishes like Cornish Game Hen, sesame encrusted salmon, freshly caught (that day) tuna, etc. The 5PM snack one day was sashimi. The accommodations are pretty basic Motel 6 type rooms but they're decent and cleaned daily. There are no phones or TVs in the rooms (fine by me). The resort is small and quiet (at least the week we were there). If you like quiet, I would advise going in late Jan or early Feb. One of our days there, we were the only 2 people present. The days that other guests were there, we got to be good friends since the resort is small and everyone eats together. All things considered, this was a very enjoyable week.
