2 camera rinse tanks (1 on each side of boat). 2 multi level camera tables
(1 on each side of the boat), tri-level charging station on dive deck with
lots of outlets and multiple power bars. Crew placed camera on camera table
after dive - they did NOT pile them on top of each other in the rinse tank
- no suprise scratches or floods.

5th trip to this destination with Peter Hughes. Great easy diving as
always. New schedule did 5 dives on 3 dive sites per day instead of
previous trips with only 2 sites per day. I liked the 3 sites per day
better. Fish life & diving service the same as before, always left me
wanting to return.
Included some new sites off Long Caye with an intersting profile - top of
reef was only about 20 feet (no hang bar here) with a vertical wall. Top of
reef on other sites on Half Moon were deeper, around 40 feet. Boat had some
minor upgrades since our last trip: improved seating on the deck outside
the dining lounge, new carpet & big flat screen tv & XM satelite
radio in dining lounge, dvd player & flat screen in our room, new
carpet, hammocks & loungers on the upper deck. Even more copies (3
recent sets?) of the Humann fish books available on board.
Only 10 divers on this trip (9 crew) but almost everybody had digital
cameras. No dSLRs, mostly low end point & shoots. This matches the
trend i have noticed over the past couple of years.
