This was my first trip since getting NITROX certified, although I've been
diving for 17 years. Nekton folks made it simple and fun.  We only had 11
divers on a boat built for lots more so they gave all of us solo travelers
separate rooms.  A real classy move IMHO.  I would not want to have shared
one of those cabins with another guy.  Just too small for two guys.  Food
was very good.  Staff was excellent. Easy going, friendly & helpful
throughout the week  The Nekton SWATH design really does eliminate pitch
while making the passage to Brac & Little Cayman.  I took a dramamine
to be safe & slept well while we made that crossing.  They chose dive
sites that were outstanding almost every time.  There were tons of turtles,
a few sharks and Eagle Rays.  Very few morays for some reason.  Crabs &
lobster on night dives & the usual Carribbean cast of characters.
Overall, an
excellent trip   .
