Comments Grandmas to the rescue. My wife and I had a kids free dive vacation! I can’t wait for them to be old enough to join. My son is counting every day until he’s 10. He’s under 800 days to go.
We did 8 dives over 5 days. All dives were along the south west coast north and south of the Hilton. My wife didn’t feel comfortable doing shore dives, so we did all boat dives with Carribean sea sport. We liked the staff and dive masters. They delievered my wife’s dream of seeing sea horses. 4 in total. We saw many eels, small fish, lobsters. The walls are beautiful. Not as colorful as Provo’s walls but still great. This could be clarity or something that made them appear less vibrant.
In the future we will dive the West Punt area with our own dive plan. We snorkeled there it was gorgeous.
Last thing is a big one. We owe a huge thank you to our dive operator Carribean sea sport. My wife had thrown her back out a week before we left for vacation. It was tender and threatened to seize up while we were there. The dive master and staff helped get her in and out of the water safely. She would jump in. I’d help her get her BCD and weight belt on and off in the water. This was the plan the dive master and I worked out and it allowed my wife to dive with zero pain. The diving actually help. The water took the weight of gravity off her muscles for an hour at a time.

There is a lot of bleaching
