Comments The dive shop owner Keith is also the boat captain as well. Very friendly and allows advanced divers the freedom they may want. The boat is adequately equipped and the dive sites were withinn 10-20 minute ride from dock. The tanks had 3100# and Keith gave excellent briefings of the sites. The seas were flat and the vis was awesome with no current to speak of. The coral was in good shape and we actually saw a nice live black coral growing off one of the ledges which made a great dive even more special. The Nassau groupers were tame and plentiful and also a 40-50# black grouper was present as well. Plenty of reef sharks around and 100's of yellowtail snapper too. Saw a medium sized green sea turtle during 1 dive also. The dives all took place in the Fowl Key Preserve area off Abacos. Booked a package with the Dive Abaco shop including lodging at the Lofty Fig Villas across the street. Clean room with a kitchenette and nice little pool. Overall, a very good deal which I would recommend.
