Comments Jenine (our Dive Master) and Andre (our Captain) are very helpful and accommodating if you needed or wanted any help with anything. Dive briefings by Andre were thorough and boat rules and dive safety procedures were well addressed.
We were allowed to dive our own profiles and make our own dive buddy teams. No dives were over 65 feet deep. I felt that the dives were a bit pricey at $120.00 for a double dive but Bermuda is expensive for everything. The giving of historic (frameable) summaries of the wrecks was a nice touch. The only really difficult part of our day was trying to get a taxi cab or a bus back to our ship after diving. The shop wouldn't call a taxi for you so we had to flag one down each day from the road which could take more than an hour. Going to Bermuda by cruise ship is the most cost effective way to dive Bermuda because hotels and food are extremely expensive.
