Comments Water a little cold for wimps like us, (75-77 Deg F.) but not unexpected this time of year at that latitude.
One of the best, and most helpful, and skilled non intrusive crews we have experienced in many years of diving.
Jim the Cook worked wonders in the Galley, providing menus for all tastes and quirks.
There could have been a bit more cleanliness in the salon, and rooms should be vacuumed at least twice on the 6 day voyage.
The Captain ran a happy and safe boat.
Diving was as good as it gets in the Bahamas, I'd go agian but a little later in the year. Ambient temp was very comfortable, but a bit cool for diving these old bones.
