Photograpy was not an issue for me, but several other photographers on the
trip had positive comments. The boat had a clean protected rinse tank and
we had a digital slide show each evening of other photographers pictures
from the day.

The Juliet is a great boat with an outstanding crew. The cabins were
spacious with beautiful hardwoods and brass, nice windows, and the A/C
always worked. I slept well. The crew was friendly, attentive, and
knowledgeable. The food was hearty and tasty. I did not experience
seasickness at all (I have in California) and indeed there was no serious
seasickness on the boat. One person had a mild case the first night, while
crossing the Gulf Stream. The reef got better as we went south from Bimini
and further away from civilisation (and fishermen). There was some algae
damage to the reef near Bimini but truly pristine reef in the far south
near Orange Cay. As a beginning diver I felt the trip was perfect for me,
as the diving was relaxed, deep and challenging only if I wanted it to be.
This is not just a trip for beginners, however. Of the twelve passegers on
my trip I was the only beginner, and seven were very experienced
professional divers or dive instructors. These experienced divers were
clearly enjoying the excellent diving as well, diving deeper on some of the
walls. I think the best part of the trip was the excellent camaraderie
among the crew!
