The diving was spectacular as always. We had an amazing stellar sea lion
experience in the Queen Charlotte Islands; at least 15 females checked us
out for over 20 minutes, very up close and personal.The Port Hardy area is
overwhelmingly beautiful! We were fortunate to be able to dive with 4 very
knowledgable people from the Vancouver Acquarium. 
 Mike Lever has updated the staterooms and common areas to make them even
more comfortable. He and Mary Anne continue to make this one of the premier
liveaboards in the world in an area that above and below the water is one
of the most beautiful in the world.
