Comments Epic Divers is a fantastic dive op. We have dove with them for several years now. Walls, wrecks, critter diving are all possible. Dive staff is awesome! We can follow a dive guide, or dive our own profile, which is what we usually do. They have two great boats, wonderful dive ladders, drinks and snacks between dives. They offer air or Nitrox cylinders, but you want to specify in advance.
Sunshine Suites is a very nice hotel/resort. They have access to 7 mile beach across the street, very nice rooms, great restaurant (Sunshine Grill), and nice pool. We have stayed there at least a half dozen times in the past.
