Comments  
Mike Ball's Spoilsport was a great boat made better by a fine crew.  The
weather was good.  Highlight of the week was the shark feed.  Each dive had
good photo opportunities.  The daily routine was relaxed.  Dive leaders
Richard and Alex were professional and made the diving very enjoyable.
