Lots of lionfish & one of crew speared 5-10 each day.  Crew was very
helpful and friendly frequently offering any help needed, and tanks always
filled between 3100 & 3200 with nitrox between 31.5 & 33.5. Boat
was clean, well cared for, and comfortable.  Lost one night dive on
Thursday in order to move the boat from Lighthouse to near Turneffe. 
Reservations staff was very helpful.  Dancer Fleet was offering a $700
discount on the regular fare, and I got another $150 based on age.  Flight
from Denver by was of Atlanta including Belize departure tax was only
$386.00.
