No bucket for camera. But then the total time to the dive site was
reasonable brief and the camera was in the shade.

Diving with Larry is just old fashion fun. The boat ride itself is like an
adventure ride at a theme park and the diving was simply wonderful - lots
of large turtles, one eagle ray after another, the largest southern sting
rays we've ever seen and lots of healthy large green moray eels. Non-stop
action.

You need to experience Larry's wonderful dive boat and diving system. At
first it appears to be lots of rules, sort of military, but once you get
going the logic of the rules is evident and following them is easy and
enhances your enjoyment. Larry's zodiac is a marvel of scuba design.

Backroll exit and easy ladder to climb back into the boat. A great system
for diving the Atlantic side reefs where the day we dove there were 4 to 5
foot swells and some mild chop. Larry's is expensive and worth it!
