Comments Great trip, excellent boat & pleasant resort. The resort is for divers: functional, spacious & clean, (not fancy), and coffee at 7:30 am. We lucked into a suite with a veranda that fronted the bay, and a doorway located 5 convenient paces from the diveboat. Felt like heaven!
The main 45' diveboat was well organized for diving, and even when crowded had no cattle-boat feel. The snorkelers aboard did their own thing away from the divers and actually proved useful when it was time to navigate back to the boat. ;-) Captain & 1 crew were helpful, knowledgeable and efficient. Bring your own dive guide if you want one. A smaller 25' boat is also available for private charter or when only 2-4 divers are diving.
Critter sighting included a congregation of tarpon (3), barracuda, lobster, spotted eagle rays, stingrays, nurse sharks, schools and schools of reef fish (including fry and fingerlings), profuse & varied sponges and corals, and not one lionfish (yay!)

Where else diving So. California, Monterey, Cozumel, Turks & Caicos, Cayman, Honduras, Belize, Hawaii, Tonga, Palau, Morea, Sulawesi, Sea of Cortez, Galapagos
Closest Airport Miami Getting There Easy-peasy direct flight to Miami and because we used Turo. (The resort staff actually recommended flying into Fort Lauderdale because car rental there would be easier than at MIA.) 1.5h driving time from Miami.
