They treated my camera (Canon Rebel wIkelite housing) like it was gold. The
crew showed utmost concern for my expensive investment, including making
sure it always was rinsed and placed in my hands from the dive platform. I
did 26 dives in 6 days and had my camera on 25 of them. This was truly
Platinum service. I will return.

I wish that I had of known that the water was as cold as it was. (Hey I
live in South Florida). From the time we arrived 18 of us were catered to
constantly. The seas were rough as hell the first two days, but the Captain
ran us over to Eleuthera to help the seasick tolerate it. We had great
diving on steep walls, coral reefs, fantastic night dives, great gourmet
food, endless snacks, warm towels, plenty of liquor, great shark dives,
shore excrusions for those who wanted them (I came to dive and thats all I
did besides eat), a general feeling of being appreciated by the entire
crew. My only regret was that it was only 7 days instead of the 14 days
that I should have booked. I will return and dive with this operation
again. Oh yeah the coolest part of the trip was the washing machine. Not
going to try to explain but better than an amusement park ride. This is a
MUST DO DIVE trip.
