I have nothing but the highest praise for this operation. The vessel is the
best I have ever been on and the crew surpassed all expectations. There was
no request that was not promptly and cheerfully attended to. Turnover on
liveaboards being what it is, I only regret that those who follow me will
not be able to enjoy the ministrations of Captain Lachlan MacKensie and his
assitants Sonia Johal and Laura Shepherd. However, local divemaster
Raúl Cruz will hopefully still be around. The dive sites were of the
highest quality, tropical fish are plentiful and the corals are in
magnificent shape. With the exception of the first area at the very
begining of the trip, all the sites had a reef and an adjoining wall,
therefore, there was something for those who preferred a shallow dive, as
well as for those who sought the thrill and beauty of the walls. Diving was
at a pace suited to personal preferences. Once the dive briefing concluded,
you could dive whatever profile you selected and with whomever you chose,
including solo diving. The vessel itself is spotless, the cabins spacious,
clean and comfortable, and the the food varied and tasty. At the risk of
repeating myself I can truthfully state that the Sun Dancer II is the
standard against which liveaboard diving ought to be measured.
