Comments A North East dayboat run as a liveaboard for a 3-day trip; compared with other similar boats run as liveaboards (have been on several), this is a 5, they are all 1s. Dry suit or great tolerance to cold. Big problem is that sea conditions and visibility vary considerably from spot to spot and day to day, so that there is always risk that you will draw the short straw. But when conditions are great, they are great. Several of the dives had limited visibility because of sea conditions, but that is the risk. One dive, however, the USS Bass (137' to the top of the deck, 165' to the sand (a hard sand bottom)) was spectacular. Any NE three-day trip booked well in advance is a craps shoot but recognizing that fact, this is the only civilized way to go.

Food was excellent. Captain is an interesting, nice guy. This is the only NE boat that I will dive.
