Force-E will schedule you with one of several dive boats according to the
type of dive you want to do (wreck, reef, depth, night dive, etc). Nitrox
and rental equipment available. For this dive, I went out on the Diversity
with Captain Tony. The dive master stayed on the boat to help with entries
and exits and everyone was paired with a buddy. Water and packaged fruit
drinks were provided. With the boat at full capacity (15 divers) it was a
little crowded.

We dove the Sea Emperor (Sea Empress) with a max depth of 71 feet and then
Boca Trench with a max depth of 65 feet. At the wreck, there were a couple
of attentive stingrays and even a sleeping nurse shark in the sand. The
wreck itself is upside down as it flipped during sinking. You can penetrate
the wreck through some open areas in the top (hull).

The reef was healthy and had some ledges for lobster, crabs and moray eels
to hide in. We saw another stingray swimming around in the sandy area to
the west. 

The crew of the boat were friendly and very helpful. There are many
different types of dives in this area to be done and I would use this
operation again.
