Comments Great Trip with dive shop. Reef Divers were absolutely the best. Every person from divemasters to shop folks were super friendly and went out of their way to help or answer questions. Divemasters on our boat Twin Sister were A+ and special note to Will and Bernie. Aside from liveaboards this was by far the best crew and staff I have experienced. They were professional, safe (without undo hand holding), allowed you to dive your profile just be back on the boat 50-60 minutes with 500psi of air. Dive shop staff along with resort manager even went out of their way to get a special first stage hose that failed for one of our divers with his equipment.

Same comments for hotel staff at Cobalt Cove Resort - Food was great and staff were excellent. Hotel needs some updating but they have plans for major renovation in February. Was supposed to have shore diving from resort but as its on the North side and waves were extremely rough we could not - possibly another time of year the water is calm and allows shore diving but it could be iffy.
