Comments [None]
We thought the Explorer Two a great value for the money. The Diving while we were there was good though not great. Boat and Crew were both well prepared and helpfull. This was our first live aboard boat trip as a familey and the youngest member a 15 year old was given all of the help needed by the crew to keep her intersted and having a good time both in the water and on board the boat. The Chef, Tony was one of the best with a truely amazing variety of food all seven day and of a high quality thru out the week.
The Diving was generaly good with the typical things that you would see in the Leeward Islands, with the diving off Saba beinhg the highlight.
While we there there we saw lot's of Turtles, reef fish, Nurse sharks, but no other large Pelarigics in evidence.
We dove for a day before on St. Kitts and enjoyed both the Island and local diving there.
At $995.00 for the week it was a very pleasent well run dive outing.
