Comments all shore diving from resort, no advanced divers during my week there so all shore dives 60', currents strong at times and might change direction during the dive, one new DM guided us past the entrance back to the resort and a group of 5 of us had to be "rescued" by boat due to currents(interesting experience), many resort divers included in dives but as we were wall diving it was easy enough to avoid them at depth, had to be shuttled 1 mile to boat diving, some long distances to boat dives with strong currents, actually did first drift dive, all in all a good experience
