Excellent.  Two large tables, each with air hoses and good location 1/2
deck above the dive platform.  No electrical outlets at the tables, but,
plenty right inside.

The Nekton crew were competent, friendly and kicked back.  The term
"barefoot cruise" comes to mind, but, they were all experienced
and professional. The food was plentiful and good to very good. The ship is
quite comfortable and much roomier than  either of the Aggressor ships or
the "Spirit of Freedom" that I have lived aboard.  
We got in five dives a day without trouble, or hassle every day. I did get
in  50 dives in two weeks without feeling constrained about start or return
times.  There was always a dive master willing to go in with you at almost
anytime of the day. Once they knew you were competent they did not hover
over the divers. The only thing I wish they had was more lighting under the
ship for the night dives.
Belize has an amazing coral reef that is very accessible and is truly a
diver's paradise.  It is the second time I spent two weeks in Belize and I
am sure I will go back again someday.
