Comments [None]Our diving trip to Provo was quite good. The boat rides to the dive sites are long 40 - 45 minutes, which can be a negative in rough conditions. The dive operation was great. You did not touch your equipment after giving it to them. If a problem came up with equipment they fixed it or could provide a replacement. I would highly recommend Jayne and MIckie who were excellent at finding all sorts of things and writing them down. We did see sharks on every dive. Several groups did see whales, which are fairly common at this time of year. We never had more than 8 divers on a boat. We rented a three bedroom villa with another couple. The name is Villa Camilla. It was right on the beach near a very good snorkeling area. A group of Hawksbill turtles were there every day. The villa is centrally located on the island. (We did have a rental car). The villa could use alittle refurbishing, but was very comfortable. The food at the various restraunts was very good. Dinners can be a bit pricey, but there were several very good reasonable priced places to eat.
