Excellant 6 pack operation.  Easy back roll in, ladder you can use with
fins on. Captain / Owner Jeff was a pleasure to dive with. Six divers max. 
Easy to get into BC's and in / out of water. Jeff takes BC and put's in
rack when you come out of water, and helps set up, and awitch gear.  Good
briefings, maps, choice of spots to dive. Leaves in morning by 8 AM, most
times first boat to site. Afternoon dive leaves by 1 PM, sooner if all
ready to go.

Diving good for inexperienced as well as experienced. Did not dive any deep
wrecks, but didn't want to.  Will do best not to repeat locations unless
you want to, always aked where we wanted to go. Did 18 tanks in 5 days, and
had a great time.  Diving was good, and Jeff made it interesting in and out
of water.

The boat gets many repeat divers.  I would reccommend to any one wanting to
dive a 6 pack operation,
