Comments Rooms spotless and comfortable. Mattress on a cement slab but comfortable. Plenty of bottled water for in room consumption. Food very good. 3 meals a day package. Dinner served late enough to allow a night dive and dinner after. No other activity except diving, sleeping and eating. Perfect in my book. Excellent shopping across the street for dive clothes and accessories. Dive shop highly competent.

Boats left and returned on time. Usually less than 10 on a boat. You bring your gear on board and set up your tank yourself. Crew makes the change for second dive. Crew helpful in putting gear on and taking it off. All diving is drift diving so boat comes to you. No time restriction just start ascent at 700 psi. Not a place for big pellagics. Nurse sharks around. Beautiful seascapes, swim throughs, tunnels and plenty of fish. Big groupers and trigger fish every where. Angel fish bigger than serving plates follow on most dives. Night boat dives frustrating because of other boat groups. Easy to get mixed up. Night dives off the shore of Scuba Club very rewarding even though in a lot of rubble. Only in 15 to 20 feet so dive time can be quite prolonged. Usually mild to moderate current so can just rest on bottom and watch the action. Octopuses common,eels everywhere, lobster, scorpion fish.
