Not any really bad.  Would have liked more Pelagics.
As for the good, the boat is outstanding, large, comfortable rooms with
lots of storage space.  Excellent diving set up.

Walls and coral are super healthy and beautiful..Dive sites just a mile
apart can be distinctly different as to number of fish, sizes etc.

Saw sharks, leopard rays, morays, lobsters, big groupers, schools of Horse
Eyed Jacks, Tarpon, large Barracuda,large crabs,large spiny puffers.

Interesting navigation problem. Boat swings 270 degrees while at anchor and
so when you get back to your starting point on a dive, the boat usually
isn't there.  A bit disconcerting at first, but bye and bye she comes
swinging into view.  Then,it's best to go for the safety bar while the boat
is still heading your way, or use a lot of air trying to catch her if you
let her drift by.
