Comments On August23,2003.Alan and myself boarded The Juliet, a live-aboard operation that sails out of Miami Fl.Alan and myself are both dive instructors and have logged hundreds of dive between the two of us.The Juliet is a 104ft, three mast schooner,the ship was well maintianed,it has two heads [forward and aft] both with showers and they are in the process of adding a third head about mid-ships.The Juliet only takes a maxium of twelve divers with a crew of five. We were very impressed with the size of the cabins {double occupancy].We didn't feel like we were packed in like sardines like some other live-aboards.The crew was great Capt John. 1st mate John S. are both instructors and the other three crew members are either rescue divers to dive master. The food aboard was outstanding and plentiful, Christy the ships cook did an outstanding job. The dive briefings were informitive and we were allowed to dive are own profiles. the only restrictions was to stay above 130ft.The reefs are great and the crew did everything they could do to see that everyone had a good time. There was deep sea fishing when we were sailing,We all went lobster hunting twice and the diving was great; It was one of the very best dive trips I have been on. The web site is www.sailjuliet.com. Give it a try it was great time.
