Comments Pickup at airport provided, with a one and a half hour van ride to the dock where the boat takes you to the resort. Good briefing on arrival, the rooms are built on the side of the hill with a fantastic view of the straits. Dive operations are very smooth, boats left on time and had one dive guide for every four divers. Boats are roomy and a comfortable ride. Most dive sites are not more than a twenty minute or less boat ride. All dives were with computer and had a sixy minute bottom time. Nitrox is available. Dive guides are very proficient at finding all the little critters that everyone wants to photograph. If you tell them in advance what you want to see, they will most likely find it. This place is macro heaven, with all the weird critters that you see in the reference books. Dive guides make sure that everyone has a photo opportunity before moving on. Most dive sites are muck dives, with black sand bottoms and lots of trash. Some sites are coral and rubble. The critters are well camoflaged, so stick with the dive guide if you want to see the most things. The shore dive is great for the mandarin fish at dusk, but use a dive guide if you want to be sure of seeing them. The meals are varied and tasty, service was good. The rooms are kept spotless and cleaned while you are diving. The outdoor bathroom is unique; enjoyable and private. The management went out of their way to make sure everyone was taken care of and was having a good time.
