LOTS OF STAIR




































Lots of stair climbing. The food is decent (better than the Arenui!). the water was cold 76 to 77 degrees; had a 5 mm suit, could use a vest or shorty underneath, especially with nitrox and 65 to 70 minute bottom times...brrr! Glenn was our dive master: great for locating the critters. Mike Bartick did a photo course and his pics are works of art. Learned a lot from him (so did my wife, Micky)
Wifi was virtually nonexistent. Bring a kindle for entertainment. Bar was never opened.
