My son and I just returned from a five night stay at Compass. My son was doing his certification open water dives and had an amazing experience. Too easy actually so he is a bit spoiled now. Logan was his instructor and through a storm, navigated my 14 year old nicely! The

I came here with my kid- a newly certified diver - to get him started someplace easy and convenient. And now I may have spoiled him rotten. Lovely oceanfront condo with a full kitchen. Giant balcony. Two pools and a hot tub. And best of all- valet diving. You roll out of bed,

The new dive boats are terrific. They put your gear on board for you, set it up, and rinse and clean it and have it back on board for you the next day. It couldn’t be easier and more convenient. We really liked the staff and felt that they were very professional and

Just got back from a 5-day stay and had a fantastic time. Nice quiet location with very comfortable condos (we were waterfront, two bedroom on third floor). We booked a great package deal that included three days of diving, some dive equipment, condo, and rental car. Too good

Do you allow guest to hunt lionfish while diving?
Yes, they do allow Lionfish hunting. You need to be certified. There may be a course once a week that they teach. There are certain sites where it is not allowed. Also, they have done a good job of culling so that there are not too many left, but they are good eating!

It's about $70 US to and from the airport, by taxi, plus tip. Obviously the rate varies – if you want to stop in Savannah for groceries, it may cost a bit more. There is snorkelling at the resort itself but it takes a bit of planning. The beach is self is quite rocky and once a person wades in, apparently it's quite muddy – according to a friend with whom I went, non-diver. The best bet is to jump off the end of the dock and snorkel around the mooring buoys. There is marine life there including lobsters, juvenile angelfish and others. The planning part includes ensuring the dive boats will be out long enough not to cause you danger, and also to ensure there is a boat at the dock so you can climb on one to get back. There is no ladder on the dock itself. Other than that, there is not much around the resort, although you could drive to Morritts/the Reef. Your best bet might be to simply book a couple of snorkelling trips. I'm not sure if there is an actual package for that. My non-diving friend enjoyed sun bathing but not everyone likes doing that all the time. One interesting trip – maybe for all of you – is the iguana sanctuary. There are also hikes – the Mastic Trail – if he is so inclined. There is no snuba at Compass Point. However, every dive master at Compass Point is also an instructor and I'm sure your son could be accommodated. I'll dig up the email of the best contact person and get back to you. Wishing you the best, Crystal

Are there any dive packages available for guests staying at Compass Point?
The most common packages include seven days and five days of two-tank diving as well as a subcompact car rental – usually a Daihatsu. I like that size as I'm not used to driving large vehicles, but my husband prefers larger so we have upgraded if he is to do the driving. Shorter and longer packages are also available but, from where we are traveling, it makes no sense to go for only a week. It's also possible to add more dives including night dives, at an extra cost. Very flexible. Packages are generally quoted per person based on double occupancy but, if the second person a non-diver, the rate for that person will be lower. If two people who are not a couple wish to share a waterfront one- bedroom unit, it's still possible as there are Murphy beds in the living room. Have fun!

Snorkelling around the resort is great – lots of life at the mooring buoys, lobsters and a variety of fish. However, my friend tried to go swimming off the beach and found it difficult, sinking into the mud. It's better to jump off the dock and swim out. Then, one can return and climb onto a boat tied at the dock. Of course, timing is important. At the end of the day, once tanks are unloaded etc., the boats are out at the mooring buoys. Best to check with the on-site dive shop as to timing. There also are dedicated snorkelling trips, on a boat with no dive tanks so it will only be taken to sites appropriate for snorkelling, not deep dives. I don't know how much that costs, but you can get information online from Ocean Frontiers.

There are a number of reefs that are only about a 5 minute boat ride from the resort, but I don't think there are any that you can just swim to from the shore.

"Had a great one bedroom with two murphy beds on top floor, ocean side. Quiet, simple and better than expected.."
"Built for divers, but the rooms are for anyone who wants a quiet place to stay on East end of island"
"Beachfront building has the best views while still being very peaceful, up until the morning divers start arriving at the dock."
"While they're all nice, we stay on the ocean side so we can look out over the sea. Across the small road are newer, larger units."
"I think the best single bedroom condo is 307 as it is top floor on the corner."
