Comments I've been on this cruise before. Crew was fantastic with the exception of 1. Captain Tucker made sure everything went as smooth as possible. One dive site had a ripping current, got 2 dives in but passed on the third. Other dives were smooth with only a lite current. Accommodations were good. Food was overly seasoned with no alternative (not a good idea on a dive boat). Food people had asked for comments as meals were posted, but were highly insulted when anything was said. 1 entree per meal, take it or leave it. Boat had just finished Coast Guard inspection so there were a few issues while getting the boat back into normal operating conditions. You are dropped off at the Los Olas Riverfront before the cruise. If you get in early, this can be a challenge since most everything there is out of business. Post cruise, you are sent to the airport early. It can be a challenge if you have a later flight.
