Comments Dive guide gives max depth, max time at each dive location.

Short boat rides, boat comes back to the dock between all dives - which allows flexibility for the less inclined diver. Potential for 19 boat dives plus shore dives during our week.
Soft corals were good, hard corals showed some bleaching. Overall reef looked healthy. Not much trash on bottom. We saw turtles and green morays on about half of the dives. Saw multiple eagle rays on 4 dives during the week. A fair number of grouper though nothing really big, except for the shark dive no sharks or other larger critters.

Resort is well taken care of very clean, they work hard to keep it so. Rooms are well kept. Best to get one on the key with AC. Food good and plentiful and is included in the price.
Dolphin and shark dives available. Nice classroom for our meetings. Staff was very friendly and helpful, A computer terminal with Internet access was available in the reception area for guests not travelling with a personal device.

Service staff at reception & in the restaurant & bar was pleasant & cheerful. Staff recommended that we use only bottled water to drink, several of our group who didn't had stomach trouble after the trip.

DM was Alson, and the boat captain was Jimmy. Both were professional and very helpful, Alson did a great job of pointing out small critters during the dives. The Staff changed tanks between dives, told divers to check setup and PSI before getting into equipment. 2 night dives were included in the package, the bio luminescence was great, had several new night divers who were very impressed.

"No see um" sandflies were bad at the dock and several of the group had many Bites when bug spray wasn’t used.

Nitrox was available during the week.
