Comments SERENE DIVING, STAFF CARRIED GEAR AND CHANGED TANKS BETWEEN DIVES, YOU WERE RESPONSIBLE FOR GETTING IN GEAR AND WATER, BUT THEY WERE ALWAYS READY TO HELP. GUIDES DID NICE GUIDED TOURS, BUT YOU WERE FREE TO DO YOUR OWN THING. EVERYONE HAD TO HAVE A COMPUTER(THEY HAD THEM AVAILABLE FOR RENT). YOU WERE RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR OWN TIME AND DEPTH. MAX DIVE TIME 45", WE FREQUENTLY HAD 1000 PSI LEFT(MY EQUALLY EXPERIENCED WIFE, AND MYSELF). WE WERE HAPPY WITH THE OPERATION, BOAT WAS NOT CROWDED, LARGE AND COMFORTABLE, AND A CONGENIAL GROUP OF "GOOD" DIVERS. wE'LL BE BACK.
