Comments Ocean Frontiers (oceanfrontiers.com) is a 1st class outfit that spoils it customers. They're located on the northeast end of the island and we dove sites on the north and east sides. They offered free shuttle service to and from Morritts. If you dive multiple days with them, simply put your gear in a provided basket. They will rinse it off and store it for you. Upon arrival, you're gear is set up on the boat. They also change your gear to another tank after the 1st dive. I dove with them for 2 weeks (20 dives) and the only sites we repeated was Stingray City (due to the dive packages I took) and the night dive (both night dives were great;20 feet for 60 minutes). Dive briefings were complete. Boat had no more than 12 divers, broken up into 2 groups. Nitrox is available. 1st dive (100 feet) is guided. 2nd dive (keep around 50 ft.) is guided or on your own (dive your computer). Everyone associated with Ocean Frontiers was friendly and enthusiastic.
