Comments Went down there with a lot of other divers telling me that the diving would not be that good. Saw lots of little critters every dive i did. I Followed the dive guide every dive as they were finding all of the neat things to look at. Thought that the breifing was very good before the dive. Liked that there was a roll call before we left the dock and as soon as everyone was back aboard the boat. Numerous dive sites throughout the week. Crew very friendly and helpful. Prices were very good, included renting tanks and such. Was very pleased with the charter operation.
