Comments A very well run operation from start to finish. Via email I was able to make all arrangements with Lynn. She made hotel, dinner, and transportation plans seamlessly. We took the morning (8:20) flight from SMX and were met at the airport by a taxi driver looking for us. From there it was straight to the dive boat for three dives (with lunch from a local place delivered). A taxi was waiting at the pier to get us to our hotel. Same drill the next day in reverse. Everything ran like clockwork.

First dives of the day are pretty deep (~100 feet). Due to strong currents our choices of dive sites was a bit limited, but still plenty of great locations. Dive staff, Ashley and Aaron, took care of our equipment from start to finish, including rinsing at the end of the day.

We plan to go back and spend more time on the island.
