UW Photo Comments Do to drift diving it was difficult to spend too much time trying to set up a shot. Close up and macro were good, distance, due to visibility, was poor. Large table aboard the boat for cameras and such equipment but no dedicated wash tubs. Crew was very accomodating when passing cameras in and out of the boat.

Comments Peter Hughes really out did themselves for my group on this trip. Due to some scheduling problems a trip to Grenada that had been in the planning stage for over a year had to be changed three months from departure time. Diana, Christi and Jeff of Peter Hughes really came through for us and saved the day. We all loved the Wind Dancer. A great crew, excellent food, a beautiful island and wonderful friendly people on the island. Unfortunately the weather acted up a bit and prevented us from diving some of the better sites and knocked the visibility down a bunch from what we are used to. But over all it was good diving. I think that it is for advanced, experienced divers that have a number of drift dives under their belts. Highly recommend the Wind Dancer to other subscribers.
