          Can we go diving on the bar reef from here? How long is the journey car/boat ride to the reef? Would we need to book with a dive company in advance? (December visit) Many thanks Helen

          I didn't dive there either but I'm sure it can be arranged. They do say, "no problem" a lot, and are pretty laid back, but things get done. Have a great stay, it's a lovely place.
