San Salvador Island, Bahamas is a pristine island on the easternmost edge of the Bahama archipelago. The island is surrounded by a reef wall that descends to greater than 200 feet. The water visibility is typically 100 foot. Dive sites on the western wall are laced with chutes, chimneys and swim-throughs that could start at 50 feet on the top of the reef and exit out the wall at 120+ feet. Clear blue water.

Our hosts Susan and Jean-Paul treated us to the stable, generous catamaran Eagle Ray. We enjoyed spacious setup room and the luxury of fresh croissants, cheese, sandwiches, fruit, and coffee. It was an 8 AM start, 2 dives and back in time for lunch.

In addition to stunning diving, the French-owned Club Med served excellent food and fresh baked items. Lots! This resort caters to people with healthy and discerning appetites. The White Chocolate Bread deserves its mythical reputation (beware of a lasting memory). Each night there was a show or some other hilarity sponsored by the staff. And then came the dancing, dancing and dancing. Or sleeping, sleeping and sleeping, as in my case. What makes this resort ideal is that non-diving and past-diving members are also at home with choices of kayaking, sailing, and sailboarding (and drinking up all the good beer at the Pinta Bar - you know who you are!!!). As a dive club, it is a pleasure to have an environment for all our friends.
