This is a first class operation.  The boat was spotless, the crew
enthusiastic and always accommodating, the food was excellent and
plentiful, and the Captain is very good.  Their famous "Washing
Machine" drift dive is a real kick, entering the water from a moving
boat and being picked up by the same 102' catamaran expertly!  All dives
are done off the main boat, which allows individual bottom times according
to your desire.  There are two private showers on the dive deck that
provided hot water to the very last diver (usually me).  The only
"extra" they do not provide is hot towels after every dive.  The
reservation process was excellent, and the crew was wonderful.  Our group
of 19 divers had an excellent and very relaxed week and are planning to
return.
