Comments Diving was easy, with no current at all to contend with. The boats are spacious, with plenty of shade, slow but steady, but speed doesn't matter because the dive sites are close in. The sites were typical Caribbean: reefs and walls lush with healthy coral and sponges, turtles, and colorful fish (wrasses, butterflies, parrotfish, squirrelfish, moray eels, barracuda, & puffers). Because the area is a marine preserve, many large grouper have been spared over-fishing. Dive masters located several seahorses and a rare pipefish. Night divers saw octopi and lobsters. Dive masters were responsive to our requests to slow down and show us critters on dives where it was necessary to descend and ascend together to avoid boat traffic, and had no objection to our diving our own profiles any other time.

An exceptional feature of the resort is a lagoon on site, almost too shallow for scuba, that affords a slow-moving photographer plenty of opportunity to spend two or three hours of bottom time per tank, seeing nearly everything found on the walls and reef.

The resort is clean and comfortable and the food very good. The managers are striving to offer land-based activity, as well, ranging from a barbeque with fire dancers and singers ( the "Burrito Brothers" really stunk), and off-site rain forest canopy rides on cables, dolphin swims, and shark-chumming (which we passed up). The best entertainment was the resort's pair of Amazon parrots, which talk constantly.

Enforced diving restrictions There was a little tendency to herd divers if the boat was off the mooring. Camera folks had to make it clear they wanted to do their own thing and were left alone. Stay less than 130 and no deco.
