UW Photo Comments My camera needs were very minimal, as I shoot with a Canon A20 digital without an external flash. I was the only photographer at the resort for the week, really there were only 4 of us, so I did not get a sense of thier camera set up.

Comments Wonderful, small, intimate resort on the beach. Your meals are taken with the owners & staff, so you get to know everyone very quickly. The staff responded quickly to issues, were attentive when you needed them & gave you lost of room to explore as you wished to. The dive sites were 10-15 minutes boat ride for the most part. Surface intervals were on wonderful white sand beaches with shells galore.
They dive when you want to dive, so the guests set the tone for schedule.
The high point of the day was the late afternoon gathering at the beach bar to visit & watch the sun go down before dinner.
The only down side, if you can call it one, is that there really is no shore diving. The area is wonderful for snorkeling, but not anywhere deep enough for diving.
