Our group (Flippers & Zippers) have been doing dive trips together for
15 + yrs.  This boat was awesome!  The crew (Joji, Clinton, Mosese, Peni,
Adam ) made everything gel. Peni is the 1st chef to really accommodate
dietary restrictions of the group. 
Jenny Collister at Reef and Rainforest (reefrainforest,com) is awesome and
made it happen.
It was worth the airfare, the charter rate, AND the international flight to
spend time on this boat with this crew.
Only drawbacks...crew could be better versed in identifying critters, and
the fish ID books were somewhat lacking. Nitrox was mostly at 30%, and 2
couples had complaints throughout the charter with smell in their
bathrooms, which, in fairness, the crew tried to address.
Great trip, and would do it again with this crew!
