Comments Excellent operation.

Friendly shop staff.

Good briefings,small groups,well maintained boats.

All Wall diving. Assemble below boat on top of wall at 30-50', then over wall to 100' max. follow wall in a 20 minute slow ascent. Return on top of wall and explore shallows to boat for remainder of the dive surface with 500 psi. I saw gray reef sharks on every trip out (some curious). Southern and eagle Rays, turtles, reef fish (isopods attached to butterfly fish). Octopus, morays, spiny lobster lion-fish, grouper, jaw fish, garden eels, peacock flounders,Horse-eyed jacks.

I saw saw much elk-horn and stag horn coral on GBR.I had forgotten that it was once abundant in the Caribbean. This Coral was better than expected
