Comments Weather was sunny, but towards the end of our stay, we had periods of rain showers and choppy seas.
Hotel was nice and clean. Food was good. Some items may not be readily available because the banana boat had not arrived. They get three supply boats a month. As an example , we did not have some condiments on hamburgers at the beginning of our stay, but arrived on a supply boat and were available.
Great dive operation, with lockers to dry and store gear, accurate mixed gas fills and Nitrox.
Technicals divers were all open circuit with stage cylinders. We dove 12 wrecks. Deepest dive of the trip was 190 feet. We could choose between following the dive guide or doing our own thing.
Recreational divers dove shallow wrecks on a separate boat. They could choose between following the dive guide or doing their own thing.
