Large camera table on dive deck, with low pressure air hoses for drying
gear. Crew was extremely helpful in handing cameras to divers during
periods of heavy seas. They understood the need for care during rinsing as
well.

Food is excellent and always plentiful. Cabins are some of the largest in
any liveaboard fleet. Vessel is about 10 years old, but is very well
maintained, a tribute to the crew. Nice open sun deck on top, with plenty
of room. During our week on board, we had 40 knot winds for the first half
of the week, remnants of the tropical storm, but the Captain maneuvered the
boat for the calmest seas possible, and found calm conditions for the nigh
mooring so we were able to get a good rest every night. The shark dive done
on Wednesdays is fun, as you can get relatively close to the action for
photo opportunities.
