Comments This was an Island Dreams group trip led by Ken so everything was taken care of quickly if a problem arose.The resort was clean & comfortable.The food was good.When water ran short they brought in more fresh water making equipment.My friend & I were suppose to share a room but deluxe rooms only had one bed so they gave us separate rooms.We also enjoyed cooked to order breakfast each morning.We were well taken care of throughout our 10 night stay.Our group much preferred the ocean reef diving which was beautiful...healthy corals & lots of colorful fish.The ocean was calm & vis was good so we only dove in the fjords 1.5 days which didn't compare to the ocean reefs in my opinion...but if the ocean was too rough to go to the reefs at least you could still dive in a muck type environment.The resort was at the top of the bluff & the dive operation at the bottom so you get your daily exercise if you choose or you can ride in the van. Our dive boat was unique...The 6 divers sat in plastic lawn chairs on a shaded boat...very comfy.The crew helped us into our gear one by one & off we went.It was great! Two other boats were set up totally bus seats.We stayed out for 3 ocean dives so lunch on the boat everyday for our group.Great diving & comfortable, well run resort & dive operation.Do watch out for the could be a little aggressive!
