Water was breathtakingly clear with some of the best visibility I've ever had, and we did see a black tip reef shark (sadly no lemons), a huge school of 2-300 barracuda, and a school of fish I can't I can't identify...

After returning from scuba diving, we relaxed in our bungalow and called to ask the staff to heat up a meal for us. After about an hour we walked up to the beach restaurant and enjoyed a delicious lasagna lunch.

We then prepared for Shabbos by...


1) Was diving in BOB worth it, compared to just the snorkeling?

2) Did you eat your meals in the restaurant at all? If so was the staff fine with that?

3) Any other activities you'd or last minute advice while we await the end of this TR? Headed to BOB next week hopefully :)

1) Diving, while clear, was not as good as some of the other places we've been (e.g. MLE, GBR, DPS, etc).  That said, visibility was great and it's definitely better than snorkeling.

2) Yes, we did. Assuming you're referring to Thalasso, yes, they were totally fine. They served it wherever we wanted without issue.

3)  Definitely rent a moped and bike around the island.  Only real way to get a feel for it, IMO.
