Comments Boat. Barebones. Seating with 3 - maybe 4. Minimal shade. Very low on comfort. Water was a shared 1 liter bottle.

Diving. Done with steel 72s. They said they had larger tanks but they were all out for hydrotesting. Fills on 72s to 2500. End result was a longer shallow dive or a very short dive if you went to 70 feet or more.

Dive guide was Bill Tewes. He is enthusiastic about his area but to claim that it is a "critter capital" is a stretch. Lots of eels, a sea horse here and there.

Young Island. Nice environment. Logs of biting bugs. Food is OK but not fabulous. Overpriced.
