We had two great east coast dives with Bas Tol from VIP divers. I've dived with Bas before and now he works for VIP which was just around the corner from the Divi, where we stayed. First, we dove Boca Onima. I had watched waves roll into the Onima in the past and never dreamed I'd actually swim through the waves to the grandest coral reef on the island. Cindy looked down and said, "We can do that." With coaching from Bas we made it without a problem and the dive was astounding. Huge coral formations. Also saw Bas kill three Lion Fish. Next I did a night dive with Bas at Kai. We saw:

We checked with windguru.com to make sure the wind and wave conditions were low. It's not a dive Bas does if the waves are high. I was surprised at how easy it was to navigate through the waves.
