Jim Stickler's Hydrodiver was exactly what we were looking for. He offers a
small, personalized, relaxing dive trip for up to 6 divers. Jim discussed
departure time and dive locations instead of pluggin us into a timetable.
Our first dive of the day was a trip to the Yukon, a wonderful wreck dive.
During the surface interval he asked where we would like to do the second
dive. We indicated we would like to dive the Yukon again so Jim offered to 
relocate from the stern mooring to the bow mooring so we could experience
the whole wreck and the cool dolphin cutouts. He was also most helpful with
our weighting problems. I was in a new drysuit and my son was in a 12 mil
weightsuit for the first time. Food was plentiful with a variety of drinks,
snacks, and sandwich fixings. My son appreciated the warm shower after 2
chilly dives. For a relaxed personalized dive boat, try Hydrodiver.
