Comments One of the best resorts I have ever been to, and my new favorite place in the world to dive. I will go back. Many of the other people there had been there many times. One guy said it was his 6th. I have been muck diving before, but nothing like this. I normally take about 300 pictures in 3 or 4 dives. I was taking that many per dive here.

They guarantee no more than 4 divers per guide, and our guide, Opo was fantastic. I think I saw everything I was hoping to see.

All the staff and dive crews were 1st rate and would go way out of their way to ensure you had a pleasant experience.

I missed the first dive on the first day because we got in after midnight and by the time I did all the paperwork and put my camera together the boat had already left. I was planning on skipping the first night dive so I could get some rest, but after my first dive, I didn't miss another one, day or night, and didn't want to leave when it was time to.

Dive Policy

Dive own profile no
Enforced diving restrictions You want to follow the guide, and Opo is his name. Most dives were well over an hour, they wanted you to surface with 500 lbs., but many times the dive ended under the boat in 20' and if there were interesting things to shoot, I'll admit I didn't always have 500 left when I got back on the boat.
Liveaboard? no Nitrox Available? yes
