Comments The dive operations run by Blue water is excellent for service, dive masters, guides and extremely friendly service and support. The number of divers per boat was kept small and that made for a great dive experience. The only down side was the limited fresh water rinse tanks for BC's, wet suits and camera equipment post dives. We were better off using the bathroom in the hotel for this purpose. The food at the hotel is limited, but there are several great places to eat within walking distance from the hotel.

UW Photo Comments The boats did not have much in the way of safe camera containers. We used coolers to protect the cameras and salt water. No fresh water available to rinse cameras. Had to wait until we returned after the second dive to rinse in our room.
