I had previously been on the "old" boat.  This boat is great!  It
holds 18 passengers, which might get a little tight, but the week we went
we had 6 guests (and 6 crew).  We had a beginner diver with us, as well as
a camera dude, and everyone was well taken care of.  There was some surge,
making the re-entry onto the boat somewhat dicey after some dives, but the
crew was always there to help.  

Room 1 is all the way forward, with a queen bed (no overhead bunk).  Rooms
2 & 3 are slightly smaller than the rest (but not appreciably).  There
are flat screens in all the rooms, individual AC, hairdryers, en suite
bathrooms with soap & shampoo. There are 2 hot showers on the dive deck
(with shampoo & conditioner), and all our dives were done from the
boat.  There was also a hot tub on the upper deck.  There were soda,
juices, water, coffee, tea, local beer, and wine available. 

The sea mounts were the dive highlights for me, as were the 2 whale sharks
on the last day. The diving was cooler than I thought it would be...most
all of us were on the "cool" side in 3mm, wishing we had a bit
more neoprene!  Water temps are noted above.

The crew...they make this boat what it is. Captain Nestor really tries to
get out of the weather (mostly wind/surge), and find great areas to
maximize your dive week.  Naja is nothing short of amazing, as is Saby,
John, Candy, and Marna.  Another plus was being greeted at the airport in
San Pedro Sula by a crew member, and escorted to our connection, and the
same on the return.  A crew member actually made the 30 minute flight with
us both ways!

I would dive on this boat anytime!
