The sharks and eels were not camera shy so we obtained a lot of good video
and photos.  The other sea life was about average, not bad but not great
either ...

The crew on Sun Dancer II is excellent!  They maintained just the right
level of friendly interaction while keeping the relationship professional. 
I wanted for nothing while I was on this trip and 2nd Captain Megan is
beyond compare.  I have been on many boats and stayed at numerous resorts,
but Megan's excitement really made a difference for me and my wife.

The rooms and accommodations were very nice.  Just like our previous trip,
the food was excellent.  While the camera tables are big and located in a
great location, the air hoses did not work at either table.  There were
plenty of places to charge our batteries on the dive deck or up in the
galley (if you want to keep them dry and salt-free).

The dive conditions were not quite as good as our last visit, but we can't
control the weather.  The lionfish are obviously out of control and I agree
with their policy of spearing them.  However, the direct feeding of the
lionfish to the sharks and eels has made them significantly more
comfortable ...
