This is my son's and my third trip on the Odyssey.  There is not a whole
lot one can say about the Odyssey that has not already been said.  The
Odyssey simply has no equal.  It is a superbly run operation with no weak
points.  If there was any gripe on this trip, it would be the vis.  At
times it barely was 20ft.  That is just a bad break.  The lagoon is not
blessed with 100ft visibility at any time.  However,the week prior to our
arrival was very rainy and stormy.  By the end of the week of course it got
a lot better.  The food and service was outstanding.  
Ordinarely Darren and I dive by ourselfs.  We are wreck junkies, are very
careful and know overhead etiquette.  The guides Sam, Todd and Kent offered
their services so we did several dives with each of them.  That was a good
call, we got to see a lot of things we missed before. Like a engine room
entry through the smokestack on the Shinkoku.  A 50ft vertical drop, Some
amazing instrumentation deep inside the Rio, or hold five on San Francisco
at 180ft.  Deco gas was available up to 100%. it just doesn't get much
better than this.  We can't wait until 2011 to do it all over again.
