We had lots of cameras on board. There was a good camera table with outlets
for charging. Dedicated wash tank. Excellent support to pass cameras to
divers and take them to the wash tank at end of the dive.

We had a full boat with 16 pax (can hold 18 but would be tight.) The rooms
were comfortable. If I had one room complaint it was that I couldn't see
anything but the top of my hair in the mirror, but then, I'm short. There
is a hot tub on the sun deck. Now, I have always thought that a hot tub on
a dive boat was worthless. In this case, maybe because we had the right mix
of people, we used it often and enjoyed it. Food was excellent and prepared
and served by an excellent cook and our purser. The dive deck crew was
extremely helpful and always aware of where we were during a dive. Dive
masters could not have done a better job, Capt. Nestor, Louis, and Gabby
were professional and provided the appropriate amount of help for each
diver. Gabby was exceptional at helping with equipment problems (I had one
of those kinds of trips.) 
The diving was really good. We did miss a few dives due to weather early in
the week, and an inconvenient plane crash later in the week. Fortunately,
the crew and passengers pulled together and the response to the plane crash
went amazingly well. Better still and in no small part, because of the
response from our boat and the skills of the passengers (2 doctors), there
were no fatalities and only minor injuries.  
The reef was relatively healthy in spite of diminished young fish (maybe
the lion fish issue.) The Honduran government had responded by issuing
Hawaiian Slings to each boat. The dive masters would prep the fish to feed
to groupers and sharks. They also tried to feed them to other fish such as
eels with no success (although lobsters loved them.) This might be a good
idea if it teaches the native grouper and shark to hunt lion fish--only
time will tell. As you might expect though, there are some groupers out
there that are getting insistent on being feed. I was bit by a grouper (I
was not feeding, nor had I handled the lion fish.) Fortunately, it wasn't a
bad bite (didn't bleed enough to attract anything interesting.) 
There was a really good shark dive, several interesting turtles, and as I
mentioned, some friendly groupers. None of these dives were difficult or
technical in any way. We had too young divers with us and they had no
problems at all. All passengers were diving NITROX by the end of the week.
I would recommend this boat and crew to divers of all skill levels. We
enjoyed it, enjoyed the crew, and enjoyed the relaxing diving.
