Spent three days (six dives) with Capt. Bobby Cox and the Diver Down in
Atlantic Beach, NC.  The boat crew was efficient and attentive. I was
addressed by my first name and certainly didn't feel like a cattle boat
number. The boat is rigged with a tag line and hang line underneath. 

The Capt. gave good briefings about the wrecks and included a history of
the site as well. The crew and the divers had good interaction and everyone
seemed to be enjoying themselves. Roll call was taken before leaving the
dock and after every dive.  Diver's entry times were logged on every dive.
Everyone on the boat was using Nitrox.

The Diver Down is not a luxury craft but a good solid performer.  The
attitude of the crew makes up for any shortcomings.

Stayed at the Fishermans Inn, which is a budget motel just down the dock
from the Diver Down.  The rooms were clean and quiet. The owner/manager is
very friendly and pleasant to talk to. Coffee is available on the dock
every morning.
