Where I stayed
Altons dive centre
The boat over is actually known as "the vomit comet". That's very reassuring. It resembles something of a rollercoaster as it smashes over waves and leaves your stomach ten feet behind you each time. Not for the fainthearted.
After we reach land alive, we're greeted by a whole host of dive centre staff all trying to get you to go to their centre. I had Altons picked out as it seemed to be the one with a younger crowd and a more lively atmosphere. We rent rooms right on the sea front, and it really does have the potential to be a tropical paradise.
Not that it is today however. Its pissing it down with rain, grey, overcast sky and miserable locals looking like drowned rats. After discussing our options, settling in and having some well deserved grub, its time to plan for halloween tonight. All I can manage is my kilt, but its still a great night as both residents, travellers and divers alike party very hard until sunrise.
