No facilities for set-up, per se.  I had to set up my housing on the dock. 
They have a rinse container on the boat, which was sufficient (I have a
video housing).  They handled my equipment carefully when I got in and out
of the water.  I kept it in the rinse area (a large cooler filled with
fresh water) at all times when not in use.

I found this operation on the net (, and did a Saturday
afternoon two tank dive and a Sunday morning two tank dive.  Both were
wreck dives about three miles (and 20 or so minutes) off shore.  The wrecks
were in good shape and there were plenty of fish and other life.  Viz
varied with time of day and currents, but was pretty good (although I would
certainly recommend a good dive light if you want to see color).  Their
only restriction was to have 500 psi at the top.  I wore a drysuit, so I
was comfortable, but the wetsuit people seemed cold, and gratefully
accepted the hot soup offered before the dive.  They had decent snack food
and beverages.  The boat usually had 10 or 11 divers, and was not cramped,
but could probably get cramped if full.  The boat has a head.  The dock is
in mission bay near seaworld.

All in all, a nice operation with good people.  Price for a two tank dive
was $75, which included tanks and weights.  Nitrox was available for an
extra charge.
