Comments Good things:
The reefs are in good health with a big population of reef fish. Water temperature is comfortable (27-28 deg C) and there is some spectacular wrecks in the area. Aquanauts have a nice, friendly and efficient staff. They own 3 very good and well maintained dive boats and one of those are available for specific groups. Dive operator are rebreather and tek dive friendly.
The hotel is very comfortable and conveniently located 5 minutes ride from Airport. All inclusive packages are recommended.

Bad things:
Water visibility is Ok but not what you expect from a caribbean destination. I went in early November and caught a lot of rain. This makes its contribution to decrease underwater vis. Besides, there is little or nothing to do but stay in the hotel while raining.
Traffic is left side (British) and roads are narrow and not so well maintained.
Dive shop has few accessories for sale so is recommended to bring spare parts, specially for cameras.
The hotel bungalows are noisy during heavy rain.

If traveling with LIAT be prepared for delays

UW Photo Comments I could`t see specific room for UWP in the dive shop. I brought a GoPro and lighting and it gave me little maintenance, so I do not feel comfortable to point any opinion
