The setup was fine. But there wasn't a whole lot of interesting things to
take photos of.

We were much disappointed in this trip. Though the crew was great, the
diving was mediocre. Visibility was generally poor. Diving was from a
tender and all were supposed to stick with the divemaster. If you took too
long taking photographs, it was likely that the rest of the group would
have gone on and were no longer visible. I spent much of the dives trying
to catch up with the group after taking photos. The 45-minute limit on
dives was necessary, they said, so that they could fit in 5 dives a day,
though if they started earlier and finished later they could have allowed
more bottom time. The boat and crew were new to the area, so they weren't
terribly familiar with the dive sites. The combination of poor visibility
and lack of interesting subject matter made for not a great photographic

On the other hand, the crew were friendly and really tried to make sure
people were having a good time. Though the food was unexciting, there was
plenty of it and it was served with good cheer. All alcohol on board was
free, with the usual restriction of no diving after drinking. The captain
was quite amenable to taking input on where to go. The boat itself seemed a
bit on the shabby side -- though the cabins were clean, they were showing
their age. Reading lights were barely adequate. Anyone suffering from
claustrophobia should stay away from the bottom bunks.

If you'd put this crew in a refurbished boat in a better location, you'd
have a winner.
