Comments we were picked up at our dock about 8:15AM every morning (OK sometimes 8:30). The crew from DelMar Aquatics told about several options each day on where would be good places to dive, they asked us and listened to our suggestions on what we wanted to see and where we wanted to dive. Once or twice in the 25+ dives did the crew ask us to change or destination because of weather or water conditions. The dive briefing covered where we were, what we'd see and gave us good bottom times. Most of our dives were in the 50-60 minute range (Sure beats the 30-40 minute dives you hear about).

Often times our group spilt into shallow (less than 80 ft) and deep groups. We never lost the divemasters and they never lost us. They were there to show us what we wanted and there for and problems that may have occured. The boat crew helped everyone out of the water, handled our cameras and other gear with care. They assisted anyone who needed any help with getting to their seat or getting to the water. Mario, Alex and the rest of the guys are wonderful to dive with. Thanks Del Mar, we'll be back many times.
