We met at the shop for equipment and a briefing. I had called in mt
reservation a couple days before and what gear I needed was ready and
waiting. The DM had me try it for fit. They verified my C card, loaded us
into a van and we went to the boat. 

Aboard they briefed us on boat equipment, safety, etc., assigned us numbers
and had a roll call. For those not familiar the DM explained dive computers
and related gear.  

At the first dive site the conditions were perfect-dead flat, no wind or
chop and below the vis was 60 feet plus most of the time and no current. We
were assigned 5 divers per DM and could pretty much do our own thing as
long as we checked with the DM occasionally for air check (good idea for
the newer divers).  He showed us many fish, turtles and other interesting
creatures, corals and formations. We were around 90 to 95 feet for 27
that dive which required a 3 minute stop at 15 feet on the ascent.        

Back aboard we answered to roll call and proceeded to the next site. Plenty
of bottled water and munchies were available.

The second dive was pretty much the same except depth was around 35 to 50
feet for 45 minutes with a 3 minute stop at 15 feet.  

This was my second year diving with Seasports and I was very satisfied with
all aspects of the operation.  The equipment is very good, the crew is
fantastic, boat is big and wide enough to accommodate all 12 of us and our
gear. A plus for me is the ladders on the boat.  They slope away from the
boat and have wide flat rungs with good rails.  Makes it much easier to get
aboard for us older folks.  I can highly recommend Seasports to anyone
regardless of skill level.
