Horizon made all arrangements for accommodation at the Ramada Inn, next
door.  Rental gear was old, but in good shape.  Discount for signing up for
six dives.  Capable captain and crew; plenty of room on the boat.  Water
and juice available.  Captain didn't hesitate to pull my assigned buddy out
of the water when he was having trouble (good move).  Starting on day two
the boat was out of commission with an engine problem . . . lost that day
of diving.  Horizon refered me to Seadwellers for day three, and on day
four, since Horizon wasn't going where I wanted, they refered me to Ocean
Divers.  Good deal!  I got to dive with three operators . . . all at
Horizon's discounted dive rate.  Day Three (Seadwellers): returned to the
same sites as day one (*#@&); dive operation was good.  Day Four (Ocean
Divers): highlight of the trip was the USS Spiegel Grove; lots of current;
divers had to hold on to a line or the wreck itself, or risk being swept
away.  This dive ended too soon.  All three dive operators ran professional
operations; solid crews, clean and roomy boats, lots of consideration for
safety.  Boat captains took roll at the end of each dive so no one got left
behind.  I would dive with any of these again.  Only real negative: repeat
dives on the same sites (because they were close to port?).
