Just wanted to take this chance to thank Subkrawler for all his work on getting the Searaider rally set up!!
I donít have the literary skills to tell everyone what a great time it was. Suffice it to say that when Subkrawler sets the days I plan to be the first one to sign up.
The way that the people at Ocean Frontiers take care of you, it doesnít matter if youíre like me, a rookie to the sport or a pro, you have a great time. It is definitely the lazy mans way to dive; you drop off your gear when you check in and they take care of everything. You walk out of your suite (fantastic accommodations by the way) and get in the boat. All your gear is there hooked up and ready to go, get in your wet suit, or not, (84 degree water) and go diving. If you want they will guide you through the dive or you can go off (with your dive buddy) and explore on your own. Like I said before, perfect for any skill level.
When youíre done diving take off your gear and leave it on the boat, they rinse and dry everything so itís ready for the next day.
As for the diving itself, I donít think you could ask for more varied and beautiful dive sites. Reefs, white sand plains, swim throughs, some almost like caves (memo to self bring light next year), hundreds of different species of marine life, what more could you want.
The people that we met both at the resort and elsewhere on the island were extremely pleasant and friendly. Life on the island seems to move at a more leisurely and courteous pace, an absolute perfect place for a vacation. You canít go there and not check out Landmark Jewelry and their employees, especially Dawn and Adam; theyíre the best.
This is a lot more typing than I usually do but I just canít help it, Iím that hyped up about it, my non-diving friends and co-workers are probably getting sick and tired of me yakking away about this great experience that we shared.
Once again I want to thank Subkrawler and Thor for their parts in a memorable vacation. Take care and see you next year. Randy
