Comments This is a new operation this year. It specializes in small sized adventure diving. We were the only two passengers on a six pack boat. We ran the dive as a rondevouz dive with our charter sailboat. We made arrangements with Abaco dive adventures by VHF radio and they came and picked us up from our anchorage. Tim, the divemaster was born in the islands and has been diving since he was 8. He led us through some fantastic coral formations, tunnels and schools of shinners so thick you couldn't see the person in front of you in the tunnels. We saw tarpon and Caribbean reef sharks. We were allowed to dive as long as we had air -- and we recorded on 80 minute dive and two others that were longer than one hour. We had a great time.
