Scuba Diving - Banana Island, Sierra Leone

New year eve day was well spent scuba diving off of Banana Island.  There aren't many places to dive off the West Coast of Africa.  We were told Banana Island was the only place to dive between Gambia and Nigeria.  There was previously a place to dive in Ghana, but the closed due to the lack of divers.  A dive shop is very expensive to operate in this area because all equipment, parts and repairs must come from outside this area, presumably Europe.  And many time the shipping cost are astronomical.
