Comments Super diving: generally a shallow dive (40-60 feet) at beginning, then over the wall down to 100 feet or so. Plentiful and interesting marine life: Many friendly groupers, barracuda, filefish, lobsters, grunts, snapper, eagle rays, creole wrasse, stingrays (including a yellow stingray), Bermuda chub, triggerfish, tarpon, many turtles, horse-eyed jacks, hogfish etc. Large schools of fish. A few sharks in the distance, including a hammerhead. Wall is generally vertical and covered with sponges of all types, especially beautiful azure sponges, and coral formations. A thrill to swim out from the wall and look back. Like in space. The wall disappears in the depths, just awesome. We had unusually rough water, but the boat managed to dive next to the wall every day but one. Perfectly calm below.

Resort pleasant, but food ok not great. For future reference, don't pre-order lunch, just eat at the bar. Big downside was the lack of any beach or ocean swimming or snorkeling. There is apparently a nice snorkeling beach some miles away, but resort did not have a shuttle.

UW Photo Comments Although the U/W scene had great photo subjects, there was not much for accommodations for photogs. Boats did not have a rinse tank, but crew was helpful in handing cameras to and from divers. Rinse tank ashore. Crew was good at pointing out interesting fish, lobsters, turtles etc. Used a rented SeaLife Micro 2.0 with lights. Excellent results though a few color adjustment issues.
