[None]Great crew, dm's, food---this diving is the real world--it's deep and
if you want lots of dives watch your computer for deco limits (definitely
need computers here and for nitrox your MOD) even though some of the reef
is 60ft.---mid ship exit 10ft. above water line---must catch (down /side
line) to get to the mouring line to make your decent---tough if the line is
under the boat and lots of current.Down lines for deep stops and safety
For the more experienced a free fall is ok , but not over the walls.
Yes , the gulf does have reefs---The Flower Gardens and Stetson Bank
are awsome--Whale shark--Mantas--Bull shark--Hammer Head--Nurse Sharks
Silkies--and the biggist Spotted Drums I have ever seen . Captain Ken
even let do rig 389--truely an underwater paradise of Blennies, and
juveniles of all the reef fish----What made the trip even more special
was the coral spawning--absolutely incredible---special thanks to 
WW Diving in Humble for "making me sign up"
