The boat ride to the island really puts into perspective the beauty of this area of the world. The boat anchored at the end of the pier and the staff were there waiting to help with my luggage. Check in was quick and efficient and I was taken to my accommodation. I'd booked a single room with a garden view which was literally a stones throw from the beach, it came equipped with everything you need for island life. So within 30 minutes of arriving I was booked for my first two dives and out on the boat with Steve and Ian the two dive instructors and the experienced Captain. I qualified as a diver some 15 years ago and this was my first dive holiday in a long time. I felt instantly at ease with Steve and Ian who are two very experienced divers and their knowledge of the dive sites is excellent. I did 13 dives in total and to be honest they were the best dives I've ever done, the wrecks were impressive. If you are a diver this place has everything, fully equipped dive shop that will provide all the equipment you need and it is very good. Your kit is taken to boat each morning and cleaned after every days diving. That is service. Snorkelling is also great here especially on the house reef, abundant with Sea life and taking a trip on a kayak is another great thing to do here. Great service, good food, plenty of beer and world class diving. I can't wait to return. Go, experience and happy diving. Thanks Steve and Ian for the great adventure.
