Comments New boat, well maintained and clean boat with spacious accommodations. Entire crew well qualified, committed to customer service, and stressed safety at all times. Excellent chef (Jim) who livened up meals with his banter about just about everything. Meals were well prepared, offered great variety, and ample servings always available.
Excellent wall dive sites usually populated by a variety of large and small life. Coral in good condition. Installed mooring buoys helped to preserve the anchorage sites. Shark feed dive a must that captured the attention and interest of all aboard. Shallow dives disappointing with little life and drab surroundings. Staff let you dive your own profile and respected the abilities of experienced divers. Excellent value for money.
