Underwater Photography 1 (worst) - 5 (best):

Subject Matter 4 stars Boat Facilities 4 stars
Overall rating for UWP's 3 stars Shore Facilities N/A
UW Photo Comments Camera table on the boats a bit small; the care and attention given to equipment by crew was excellent. There were spectacular moments of video and photo opportunity but they were too few and too far between compared to other areas of world by reason of diminished amount of sea life in general and particularly the larger, more interesting species.

Comments Usually prefer live aboard operations, but for land-based, Reef Divers does a wonderful job. Very efficient management of getting divers in water and knowledgeable and friendly dive captain and guide (Jason and Vicki) that were with us for the entire week. Provided facility to rinse and store dive gear near the boat so that we were not faced with carting it back and forth each day. Boats are in good condition and no dive site more than a 45 minute run, but a bit crowded (can take 20)which isn't too bad until all divers on boat are on the same dive site at same time. Tropical Storm Claudette had just been through the area which probably affected visibility. All in all, a pretty good dive experience.
