Most of the crew were Photo instructors. All took Photo gear diving on one
dive or another. E-6  processing available, Very comprehensive digital
setup for those using digital format.
Plenty of room and wash facilities for Camera gear.

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.
