The live aboard actually stops at sites in St. Kitts, St. Eustatius, and
Saba. Biggest stateroom I have ever had on a boat. Traveled with my 13
year-old daughter (Jr. AOWD and nitrox certified) who was not treated like
a kid, but was respected by the crew and allowed to fully participate in
all the diving and activities up to the limits of her certification
(maximun depth 21 meters). Nearly all sites were within that 21 meter depth
limit, with just one exception.
