Capt. Piers and his crew are known for their excellent service to UWP's. 
Large camera table on dive deck with shelves below for additional storage. 
Big camera rinse tank with frequent water changes.  Crew all handle cameras
as if they were their own.  Piers goes out of his way to make sure that all
of his photographers have equipment to use if their own equipment fails for
some reason (no charge)!  He also encourages and instructs on photo
techniques with humor and patience.

This is a great boat for beginners/advanced divers and photographers and
non-photographers alike.  The crew is first-rate and love their jobs and
get along extremely well with one another.  The whole operation just hums
along with everyone having a grand time!

Dave, our chef, was probably the best liveaboard chef we've all
encountered.  His food was fabulous and varied.  He accommodated
dietary/taste restrictions without a glitch.  Snacks and desserts were
yummy also!

Cabins on this boat are beautiful except for the quad cabin which is
incredibly small. The two women sharing it during our week both said they'd
pay the additional money the next time for a double cabin instead. The
master cabin with its marble bath and queen bed is dreamy!  Storage is
ample in the cabins with closets/drawers and under-bunk storage.

Dive sites are typical Caribbean reef/wall structures. French Cay is known
for its friendly resident reef shark population and we weren't
disappointed.  Several of the group saw manta on two occasions and turtles
were sighted on most dives.  Macro critters need to be sought out but are
there.  Soft corals and sponges are magnificent and the barrel sponges were
spawning during our trip.  Grouper are large, friendly and photogenic! 
Cleaning stations abound on all the dive sites.  Visibility at the
beginning of the week was excellent; Hurricane Dennis affected the vis
towards the end of our week but didn't affect our diving.

The dive deck operates like a well-oiled machine.  Two huge ladders
accommodate returning divers.  There is a stationery hang bar below the
boat for safety stops along with air hoses for those running low.  The two
showers on the dive deck were high-pressured and hot.  Masks/fins are
stored on racks on the dive deck.  Air fills were either air or pretty much
spot-on 32% Nitrox for all fills and were 3000 psi consistently.  Dive
guides were available for guided dives if you wished but you were free to
dive your own profile if that was your choice.
