Boat.  Barebones.  Seating with 3 - maybe 4.  Minimal shade.  Very low on
comfort.  Water was a shared 1 liter bottle.

Diving.  Done with steel 72s.  They said they had larger tanks but they
were all out for hydrotesting.  Fills on 72s to 2500.  End result was a
longer shallow dive or a very short dive if you went to 70 feet or more.

Dive guide was Bill Tewes.  He is enthusiastic about his area but to claim
that it is a "critter capital" is a stretch.  Lots of eels, a sea
horse here and there.

Young Island. Nice environment.  Logs of biting bugs.  Food is OK but not
fabulous.  Overpriced.
