We dived with Bahama Divers (BD) for two days.  Their boats are in good
shape and handled 12 divers and 3 crew all in shade without crowding. The
captain gives a good concise safety briefing.  Oxygen and first aid are
visible and accessible. The boat has a surface-level platform, so you can
take off your rig, hand it up, and then just hop up.  I never got a tank
with less than 3000 psi and always returned with about 500-700.  The dive
masters are good guides and found fish we would have missed.  At the end of
the day, when we started to rinse our gear, the crew politely shooed us to
the hotel while they rinsed and stored our gear.  The next day, they knew
which equipment was ours, and put it on board.  Very nice.  The
videographer, Arnaldo, is also a DM and helped us with everything from
identifying fish to entertaining us on board.  (No pressure to buy the
video.)  When all done, the Captain himself drove us to our hotel.  Bahama
Divers is a good reliable operation.
