Had been on the Pilot to Belize.  She's showing her wear a little more this
time around. Rooms needed some attention and carpet had several good sized
tears on sundeck.

Staff is exceptional....always willing to guide a dive and helpful in every
aspect. Food was filling and there was plenty of it. Staff served during
meals which made for a nice relaxing time without having to get up for
condiments, drink refills etc.

Captain Nelson himself is a diver/photographer and so our diving itinerary
was well suited to divers.  Nitrox was available and only a handful of
divers were using it so that side of the dive deck was never crowded.

Medio Reef was included in our itinerary rather than the more frequented
dive sites around Bimini, but the highlight was the last several days at
the blue holes on Cay Sal.

Nekton is always a top value dive trip, especially since it leaves out of
Ft Lauderdale and so eliminates an expensive airfare to outer islands.
