... a boat for a while, relaxing in the moonlight and staring at the stars. :) On Asaf's recommendation, we are now in San Vicente for a two night splurge at a really nice and quiet resort (although I still woke up at 6am).

The one we saw was just hanging out on the side of the reef though; we looked at it for about half a minute and then moved on. If you don't disturb or threaten them, they'll basically ignore you.So that was the end of our dive trip. We headed back into town and I got the divemaster to sign my log book and stamp it.
