Comments Reef Divers's Divemasters were friendly, humorous, knowledgable and gave very detailed dive briefings (necessary when even light currents could drift you to the next divesite - they are all right next to each other). Did the 7 night 18 dive deal and were saturated by the end of the week. Boats were great - large upper deck as well as lower, great camera table, rinse facilities aboard, smooth rides. Skilled captain Morty got us through some rough surge in the channel out of the resort after an offshore storm. Morty, Craig, Mick, Mark and all the staff were great, not only on the boats, but suggesting places to visit on the island- (Aunt Shah's right down the street, & the Captain's Table, and visiting the bluff) and take advantage of the Brac Reeef Resort's free bikes! Will definitely return to this resort and dive with these guys again - did a night dive, saw my first octopus, my first hammerhead on a deep wall dive, great drift diving, the wrecks were worth visiting, and non-stop sun. Excellent macro and micro life, lots of color and healthy reefs. The food wasn't fabulous but more than adequate and you could always get by, but the resort facilities were lots of fun - a great pavilion over the water where 4ft tarpon would feed at night, hammocks aplenty and lots of coconuts to sample. On one morning dive, an eagle ray swam up to the dock and under our boat several times, then followed us out of the channel.
