Comments Accommodations were above average for a dive resort. The food was better than we had at the Rio Palace in St Matins in January.The dive outfit was very professional and safety oriented. the dive master in the water would take us out and about the site showing us the features and back under the boat in 30 to 35 minutes.spent the rest of the dive exploring ourselves. Asked to report on our air every 15 minutes.My wife who is a non diver came along and had a great time.We dove on a ship called the Kittiwake, a US Navy ship.It was a very nice dive.It was small enough, about 250 feet, to circle it a couple of times on a dive and there were oversized holes cut in the hull for safe penetration. It was in a direct line of the end of the runway. I didn't notice the planes at night and everyone seem quite interested in them in the daytime. All in all it was a great vacation.
