Battery charging station was a bit crowded and there were just 9 of us on
the boat, would have hated to see it with a full boat.  Otherwise plenty of
space for cameras and large rinse tank.

This was a very good trip which was made even better since there were only
9 guests on the boat.  I was going with a friend, so we were allowed to
split up and each had our own room on the boat.  Just lucky.  The crew was
great, and very helpful.  The dive masters were very experienced and
helpful about pointing out things to see.  I was a bit disappointed in the
health of some of the coral, definately deteriorating.  The boat promised
27 dives for the week and they delivered as promised, as long as you didn't
mind 2 days  diving at 6am.  That meant there were 6 total dives on those
days.  They were quite firm on diving with a computer.  One guest didn't
obey his computer and got locked out for 24 hours and the captain would not
let him dive during that time.  Another guest's computer malfunctioned and
she did a 30 min unnecessary deco stop just to keep her computer happy so
she could continue diving.  Otherwise, the crew was quite accommodating. 
The food was good but not fabulous.  The highlight of the trip was all the
Reef sharks that we saw.  I have more shark photos than I know what to do
with now.  They were completely unconcerned with the divers and just
circled around us on several dive sites.  Some nice nurse sharks and
groupers as well.  Petting a grouper is always an unusual experience.  Fish
were not abundant but many of the usuals were seen.  I did see lion fish
for the first time and it was a bit disconcerting to see how many of them
there were.  I would certainly recommend this trip.
