UW Photo Comments There was a medium sized table for cameras on the boat but I would have prefered a large bucket filled with water. The divemasters would get your camera from the table and hand it to you once you were in the water.

Comments Good resort with a friendly and helpful staff, great food, and good diving. I believe the diving would have been better if not for a visit from then tropical storm Arlene. We only missed one afternoon of diving but the water was choppy and the visibility reduced a bit all week. However, the dive crew did an excellent job and we still had a good time. It was nice to walk to the back of the boat and have them bring your gear and then your camera to you. True valet service! A good mixture of reef fish, rays, turtles, coral, and an occaisonal shark. If you like wall diving you could turn almost every dive into a wall dive by swimming out a little ways. The MV Tibbits is a fun ship wreck to dive with open passage ways that are easy to swim through. I don't know that there was any one thing that was really outstanding but when you put it all together it was a great trip.
