Dry table space for photographers was one deck level up from the dive
equipment.  A good place to charge batteries and keep everything dry, but
inconvenient if you forget it's up there and you already have your tank on.

This is a really great liveaboard company (Kudos to our British friends!),
comparable and sometimes better than Aggressor Fleet (I've been on 9 of
these).  Blue o Two dive guides are all very knowledgeable and ready to
help in any way.  The boat crew is always there to help when you need it. 
Most of the dives are from a zodiac, but they make it easy.  The cooks are
superb!  Once a week they put out a full turkey dinner with all the
trimmings (how they accomplish this in a 3' x 6' galley space is beyond
me!).  Food overall is really good, healthy and plentiful.

Our trip was to The Brothers Islands, Elphinstone, Daedalus, etc.  I wish
we could have spent the whole week on The Brothers.  The soft corals were
awesome!!!  Tons of fish, big ones (hammerheads, oceanic white tips) and
little ones.  Lots of stuff here for everyone!
