i have not stayed at Kapalai but i enjoyed my diving at SWV...the food is the best i have eaten in any hotel in Asia. got 5 diff kinds of fruits everyday. Friday is BBQ night, get ready to eat till u drop!! beer and liquor is on the ex side, so if u want a stronger drink better bring duty-free.

might be a good idea to mark your dive gear, my wife lost her booties there, hers is a popular brand and somebody took it by mistake.

save some energy for the night dive (shore-dive) lots of marine life around the area. have fun..
alamak, the tank goes at the back??

yes, good practice to mark your own dive gear, even the smallest/cheapest one like booties or mask... because when you lost it by mistake, especially during the beginning of the trip, it will give you lots of troubles,unless you have spare. Not easy to find exact replacement in the island.

Just my 2 cents.

chinnook.. i bet u will enjoy SWV. I did during my trip. For me and my group, the house reef itself is good. The best encounter is the flamboyant cuttle fish which i bumped into at stingray city. That's the pinnacle of this trip of mine.

The stay is good, the view is good, the good is good, the dives were tremendously good.. I have no complaint.

Hello dudeluv.. not that i know off. As an open water, of course u may dive there. Relax and enjoy the dive over there. Plenty to see and you will sure appreciate whatever that u bump into.
