    From Bruce's presence and banter to Linda's firm, efficiently run boat trips, the place is friendly and easy going. The Inn is basic but geared to divers with lockers, rinse areas, easy on/off pier and a good little dive shop. Our room was a pool...More

    The Divi ... right next door. I suggest you pack some ground coffee when you fly in. That way you can make a cup before diving the first day. If you don't have time to get to the store before arriving....its your best bet.
