Comments The dive operation was well run by a husband and wife team. Not a large boat, but sufficiently equipped for the three divers. It was partially covered and had a ladder. No on-board head. The dive shop was modest, but well equipped. There was not much gear to buy in the event mine was lost or non-functioning. I was loaned a SPG when my wireless computer failed to sync. The ride out was a bit choppy and I gathered that it was typical. The water was fairly clear and clean. The dive briefing was well done and the dive master (the husband and boat captain) was a solid diver. I liked the entire experience.
