The Crew made this trip absolutely outstanding. The service I received as a
temporarily disabled diver was fantastic. The diving was good to very good
with the highlight being the large size and diversity of the tropical fish.
We did, also, encounter a few Caribbean, Black Tip and Nurse sharks. The
Steel 95 tanks made the dives longer and our our weight pouches 6 lbs.
lighter. . .very nice. The Nekton Pilot is not as deluxe as a Dancer or
Aggressor vessel, but I really felt the crew were more willing to please.
Their service more than made up for slightly worn out surroundings. the
food was great and Erminda cooked the special dietary foods we brought on
board. For those not on a diet, there were great cookies at 10:30AM every
day. We had a great time, and heartily recommend this crew and itinerary.
