Let me start by saying I believe they have an overall good operation.  This
particluar dive was called 11 mile reef.  There were 3 folks on board
getting their OW cert dives so the dive was easy for beginners despite the
surge and lack of visibility.  If I use this operation again I will take
plenty of my own water and snacks.  The only support on board was 2 coolers
of ice (most probably for spear fishermen) and a container of warm water
with styrofoam cups. The divemasters were very good though. They helped you
put on your fins before giant striding in, and they were there to help with
gear upon exit. Briefings were to the point. There was a complete roster
check after every dive. When you get on board sit in the middle of the boat
or take up residence in the cabin area next to the captain.  The back of
the boat smells of deisel. The down side of South Caolina ocean diving is
the long trips out to dive sites.
