Comments We dove as a small group here in April 2018. The reservation process was easy and manageable. Stateside staff were available to facilitate and answer questions. Once arrived the island has NOTHING except wreck diving. The combination of great wrecks and history make this place THE place to dive wrecks. The boat was fantastic. Incredible use of space. Great dive deck. Steel 120 tanks make for extended bottom times. You could almost dive without a pressure gauge. Nitrogen becomes the limiting factor. I would not dive here w/out Nitrox. Many wrecks are deep. In order to maximize bottom time Nitrox a must. Dive deck amazing - they have an elevator for entry/exit which greatly helps anyone with back issues. The guides were great and the entire staff were wonderful. Rooms are spacious and comfortable. TV in every room for movies/videos. Food was plentiful and good. Open bar included. Day begins at 0630. Up to 5 dives/day available. Usually 2-3 different wrecks each day. Instructors available as well. Great for photographers. Nothing but great reactions from everyone in our group of 6. The wrecks are beginning to deteriorate rapidly after 70+ years underwater. If you want to dive here do so soon.
