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.
