Comments Shallow dives for the most part. The "Dive Safari" is a waste of money. It is billed as a special dive that takes you to less frequented locations, however I had been to two of them the year before and they are nothing special. Lots of particles in the water and a ripping current that you need to pull yourself along until yo reach the lee side of the rock. DM disturbed a shark for a photo op, then the shark swam directly at the divers. The best of the 7 dives was that last of the Safari that was at Lind Point and the trip to the HMS Rohne. Will definitely do that one again. Lots of interesting things to see & swim thru along with the history itself. Lots of fish & corals to be seen. Saw turtles on 2 dives along with sharks on 2 others.
