Comments [None Roger Brown and his staff at Sunset Divers were excellent bordering on outstanding. They went out of their way to make your diving experience exactly what you wished it to be. I was impressed by the teamwork within the staff.

I can't say the Kittywake dive was worth the extra money. The wreck is much too shallow to be enjoyed by an experienced diver. It is more for snorkelers than divers. I enjoyed the Oro Verde wreck much more. However, there are schools of fish gathering around the Kittywake that could increase the interest.

The only drawback I found was the requirement to remove the weights from the boat after each trip and store them in your locker ashore. It has been my experience in 33 years of diving that other operators keep the weights in containers aboard the boat.

Sunset House is a great location for East Coast divers to pop down for a few days of diving, I plan to do so in the future.
