Port Rating: 5.0 out of 5+
The pier was clean and laid out to easily find things. Shopping at the port was minimal, but some things were nicely priced. Excursion buses were close by. There were no problems or hassles getting back aboard.

Helmet Dive Rating: 5+ out of 5+
A group of six, we were put in a cab which took us downtown to Jeannie's Pancake House, right next door to Margaritaville. We were led through the restaurant/jewelry store, to a small beach area with a tiny covered space off to the side where we were given a short orientation about the dive. Then we were shown to the changing room to get ready. Divers helped us down a ladder and put the helmets on our heads as we entered the water. It was like entering a whole new world but it was better than Disney! The fish were everywhere! We followed our guide along a roped trail as we looked around in wonder. We were told that the helmets weight 70lbs, but they felt light as a feather as they kept us on the bottom and we moved around. Breathing was natural, and pressure as we descended was minimal. The hour passed quickly. Afterward we were shown to the restaurant, given free drinks and watched the video of our dive, which we purchased. We very much recommend this excursion.
