Comments SCUBA is an excellent operator in every aspect. I could not find any fault anywhere.
N2O was good on a night dive done at the pier in Freidrickstad. Not being a macro guy I did'nt see much. But one diver, "macro man",
was exstatic
Dived with Cane Bay Divers at the wall and was disappointed with only going to 53 ft. And not seeing the "famed" wall.
Stayed with John and Adell at their guest house "Villa Margarita". Great place, great people. Will do anything for you except cook.
Resturants are plentyfull and near by. Will pick you up and drop you off at the airport. Check out their website at
Everything you see is exactly as it is. No digital enhancements. The rooms are good size and well appointed. Fantastic views.
Free happy hour every night.
