Trip was from St. Kitts to St. Martin with diving in Saba(alternates
departure from St. Marting to St. Kitts every other trip). Boat was clean
and well maintained; good safety procedures; large dive deck and great
ladders; crew crew of 6 worked very hard & service was very good. The
cabins are small-don't take any extra stuff. The lounge/dining area is not
air conditioned, but is a covered area on the upper deck. The food is good
with a good variety and plenty of it.  The diving was as expected, nothing
spectacular: lots of macro stuff in St. Kitts & more fish in Saba.  The
coral and sponges looked healthy.  Some sites had a bit of current, but
diving quite suited to new divers. Some wreck dives. Up to 5 dives a day
with a night dive every night except last day. Optinal land tours offered
at both St. Kitts and Saba. We were lucky that there was no charter the
following week so did not have to be packed & off the boat at 9am on
Saturday.  We also had a 2 for 1 special price so I definitely got my
money's worth.
