[None]Excellent shark feed. Fishing anytime the boat moved. At one site the
vis was only 20 ft. on an afternoon dive. I almost passed on the night dive
at the same site but didn't. We had an encounter with the largest turtle I
have ever seen. (300-400lb) On a drift dive I saw the largest grouper I
have ever seen hiding in a cravase under a ledge. The DM (with 5000 dives)
said it was the largest he had ever seen also. (~400lb) We will be going
out again with these folks. The food was the best and plenty of it.
Quarters are tight but how much time do you spend there anyway? You only
set up your gear once for the week. Air fills are done while it is in a
rack still set up.
