Comments The trip left little to be desired. The captain was not very sociable and seemed to make little effort to know the passengers but the rest of the crew knew and called everyone by first name after the first day. They couldn't have been more friendly and helpful in all respects.
However, the first dive one morning found a considerable current not to some's liking. Upon being informed, the captain moved the boat for the second morning dive.
The only complaint was particular to our statesroom alone. We were in cabin #9 on the port side aft and had an air compressor located directly below our room. It cycled on and off all night and was quite loud. It made restful sleep impossible but since all other rooms were occupied, moving to another was not an option.
We would heartedly recommend this trip and would take it again in a minute with another room.
