Comments Remote resort ( just as we like it ) three star resort with a five star attitude & service. Spacious rooms in sets of three.(very quiet)
All meals were included (servings were large enough that my wife & I usually shared). Subway Watersports was very curtious & helpful. Everybody dove with the DM's profile. On my birthday on our way out to a dive site we encountered between 30 & 40 Spinner Dolphins that stayed with us for about 15-20 minutes. Must dive the wreck Aguila, 10 or so large groupers. Some site's had a fair amount of bleaching. Saw Lionfish every dive (all over the place), unfortunatley the DM seldom took his spear gun along. The one negetive to the complete trip was the resort being away from any local town. The taxi driver wanted $70.00 for a round trip fair to French Harbor. (15 min. away)
Safe diving to all: the MAYDIVERS.
