Comments The trip over was grueling but it was worth it. This was some of the best diving I’ve experienced. If you’re into sharks and mantas, there are some guaranteed dives. We did Blue Corner twice and it was definitely inconsistent.Other highlights… Blue Holes, Chandelier Cave and German Channel for the mantas. We also managed to dive on two wrecks - the IRO and the TESHIO MARU. Both were outstanding. Definitely get the history on each before you go. It will mean so much more.

Enforced diving restrictions Mostly time restrictions. As we were diving with others and most were drift dives, we tended to surface together. Only in a few instances did the group split off to "early risers" going up first.
