Comments The boat was well run. We had 8 staff for 15 divers. We didn't go to the blue hole and had a couple of dives cancelled due to weather, but the overall experience was good. Most of the life at the dive sites we visited were above 80 feet. Most of the boat was diving enriched air and we got our certification while on board. Lots of corals, we saw lots of small stuff. Not as many large groups of big fish as I have seen in Honduras or Bonaire. Food was excellent, the staff was very good about remembering likes and dislikes. If you are thinking about certification and have health issues, get releases from physician before leaving home. It will save hassles.
