This Island was hit very hard by the hurricane a few years ago and the reefs show the effects. ... Subscribe to get the full story. For Subscribers Only  Active subscribers continue reading here

Stan is still there? I did two trips (2011 and 2013), the last with only two other passengers. Stan fed us brocolli EVERY day, for lunch of dinner. At dinner, he put the food on our plates, as if there wouldn't be enough meat left. Enjoyed safety stops at the end of the tie, just holding on to the bottom of the hang line and let the boat carry back and forth along the reef. Sorry to hear about the reef damage.

I meant hold on the end of the hang line!
