This was the perfect live-aboard in every way.  I was able to do 25 dives
without any feeling of over-exertion.  The dives were varied and included
two wonderful fun drift dives.  I saw my first hammerhead in the wild as
well as the many nurse and reef sharks.  They allowed us to board as soon
as we arrived in the morning and didn't force us to wait until 8 PM like
Nekton does.  The galley was beautiful, and the food was gourmet and
varied.  The number of divers was limited to 18 and the dive deck was
spacious, and included two enclosed showers and a spacious head.  My
roommate and I never had to use our cabin shower as we just used these two
instead.  The two shore trips were interesting and fun.  The evenings that
we arrive and prior to departure were exciting as we could visit the casino
in Nassau for gambling and entertainment.  That they had two places with
sodas and beer on tap as well as rum drinks as part of the package also
added to the fun.  And Nitrox was only $100 for the trip.

I can't say enough about the trip and would highly recommend the boat to
anyone interested in a really great diving experience.
