We spent 3 days on the rig and had a really nice time. The dives were great and the location really is unique and has a special feel to it. There isn't much else to do on the rig besides diving but hey, that's why you're there for isn't it? We were very warmly welcomed by the staff and were shown to our rooms. The rooms itself could use a facelift, they don't have much charm but again, it's an oil rig.
The food is really good and they have lots of space to hang around and enjoy the sun.
