Comments THE DIVE OPERATION RUNS LIKE A CLOCK..THERE ARE NO BELLS RINGING.LIKE OTHER LIVEABOARDS YOU GET UP WHEN YOU WANT AND DIVE WHEN YOU ARE READY. THE POOL IS OPEN 24/7..DIVE MASTERS WHERE EXCELLENT,BY THE SECOND DAY I WAS DIVING WITH NO WEIGHT BELT AND NO WEIGHTS,WE WERE 10 DIVERS FOR THE ENTIRE BOAT. FOOD WAS EXCELLENT,BREAKFAST WAS ALWAYS MADE TO ORDER EGGS, OMLETS. ROOMS, SHOWERS WERE ALWAYS SPOTLESS. UNLIMITED HOT WATER BRIEFING WERE EXCELLENT.THERE ALWAYS SOMETHING IN THE DINING ROOM TO EAT OR MUNCH ON BETWEEN DIVES I PURCHASED DIVE SLATES OF ALL THE WRECK WE DOVE.AND DVDs THAT MIKE GERKEN THE SHIPS PHOTOGRAPHER MADE(IMAGES FROM TRUK LAGOON)NARRATED SLIDES SHOW FROM 1944 TO 2007 THE SINKING OF THE S.S. PRESIDENT COOLIDGE. AND OF COURSE THE WEEKS VIDEO JUST FOR THE MEMORIES..THE BAD: WELL I AM A NEW JERSEY WRECK DIVER AND SPEARFISHERMAN..IT WAS NOT EASY FOR ME COMMING HOME EMPTY HANDED. WITH NO PRIZES. WITH ALL THAT WW2 STUFF STILL DOWN THERE FOR THE TAKING..WELL I DO HAVE IT ON FILM..THE WRECKS AND VIZ WAS TO (DIE) DIVE FOR. LITTLE PUN
