Comments Buy a hand scale and pack according to Twin Otter baggage limits. Shorty or layering perfect for July. Mature children only. Outstanding service, food and diving. Two long non-rushed dives followed by lunch. Relax, walk, or bike before dinner. Everybody knows everybody by weeks end.
Bring what you need- Single island store expensive. Safety stressed and student divers taught buoyancy skills from day 1.
Room resort brochure had a bio on each staff member from CEO to housekeeping. Very interesting group who are committed to resort and customers.
