Comments This was a disaster trip! Wind, choppy. The scuba compressor on board the boat broke half way through the trip. Shore power couldn't be connected, a diesel leak developed, and the electric generator broke, forcing many to sleep on deck! Crowded conditions.
Don't go! Save your money and go on a better liveaboard. Don't say I didn't warn you! Cheap isn't always best, especially when your vacation time is so valuable.
