Comments This operation is perfect for both experienced and novice UWPs. The muck diving offers frogfish, scorpionfish, lionfish, stargazers, flamboyent cuttlefish, mimic and blue ring octopus, pipefish, coral shrimp, manta shrimp etc.. There are also several coral reefs available which are quite healthy and offer a wide variety tropical fish and hard/soft corals. There are even a few interesting wrecks. The divemasters can find whatever you want. The lodge staff is friendly and supportive, no problems there. The rooms are very basic. There is no AC and you have to use a bucket to flush the western style toilet, but there is space for the photo equipment. Food is mostly local, but very good. Breakfast and dinner are in the lodge and lunch on the boat. There are no pork products. Internet service is spotty. There are stairs from the shore up to the lodge that might be difficult for some people. Note that they do not take credit cards. I did 27 dives in 9 days and throughly enjoyed myself. I would dive here again.
