There was a water barrel on board for cameras; staff announced it was not
for masks as cleaning agents could damage seals on cameras.

Wish I'd known to save my money. Don't bother with nitrox.  For the short
time they let you in the water, the diving was not worth the trouble. Very
expensive trip--$105 for 2-tank plus $40 extra for nitrox (which we hardly
used at all); cattle boats. Staff was anxious to get you in the water and
back out of the water. Had a 20 minute surface interval, then back in for
2nd dive.  2nd dive was so very shallow, it eliminated need for a safety
stop.  Beautiful water, but not much to see.  Few fish, probably due in
part to enormous lionfish there; few living corals or sponges; quite
boring. Met an instructor who'd flown all the way from Germany to Long
Island--same result. Beautiful water, not much to see; pretty boring. 
Wouldn't bother to dive there again, unless I went with another operator.
This operator was a 3-ring circus and something serious, experienced divers
should avoid at all costs. Live and learn.
