UW Photo Comments The crew was highly knowledgeable and gave me considerable help in understanding any problems I had with photos. They consistently found good shots for me and helped me get into position frequently. They showed me a lot about my camera that I hadn't known before since this was only the second trip I had used it on.

Comments This crew, Captain Eddy, Nestor and Sasha, were a delight. They spoiled us terribly and were very knowledgeable about the locations. When we didn't particularly enthuse over a site, Capt Eddy was willing to find us a better spot. This they did with unfailing cheerfulness. Whichever of the crew dove with us, and often 2 went with us, they stayed with us the entire dive, pointing out the tiniest little critters. Nestor even found us a Southern Stargazer which gave him a nasty shock. Talk about taking one for the team!

The cabins were clean and comfortable even though the showers are a bit tight. But who really needs the cabin shower when the dive platform has 2 hot water showers which can be used whenever the desire arises. Beds were comfortable and when we had trouble during the night with the A/C someone from the island came out in a boat to get it fixed for us. Miss Candy and John provided us with enough food to keep us going for more dives and the quality was consistently high.

We got there the week after Hurricane Felix blew through but found no lack of service either on the island or the boat. It was a great week with a great crew and a fun group of divers - none of which I knew before my arrival.
