AKR is a good operation, very capable in handling the relatively large volume of divers they have every day. There are no really "must see" dives, you go where the vis is the best. Some reefs are more happening than others, but that often changes. Go to the sites your Captain and DM recommend for that day. That time of year the weather can play a big factor in where you'll dive. You might want to try and get a couple of dives on "El Aguila" which is a wreck less than 10 minutes by boat from the dock.
You probably won't get to Mary's Place unless the Weather's real bad. Of course, the time of year that you're going, the weather might get real bad. We were there last November and didn't have more than 1 hour of sunshine the whole week. Almost non-stop rain. The vis was greatly effected. It got so bad we ended up having to run the Pro-48s around to the south side of the island and dive out of French Harbor for 2 days - not necessarily a bad thing, but inconvenient. Because of the weather, we were unable to do any dight or shore dives at all. Even with the weather, however, we still had some good diving and a real fun trip. Good luck.
