This at least my 5th time with Quiescence and these folks do not
disappoint.  Their boats accomodate 6 divers and are not equipped with
heads.  Be advised that the boat captain handles all aspects of your
experience on board but they do not dive with you.  Trips from their dock
to typical divesites take 45 min. to an hour.  The service they give is
great from the time you make the reservation until you check out on your
way out of town.

We took the package they offer with the Holiday Inn 2+ miles south of their
shop.  The hotel is well run and a decent choice with a good pool bar. 
Coconuts restaurant is a quick walk down the dock.

We were undeniably lucky when it came to weather and underwater visibility
on this trip.  We did 8 dives over 3 days and experienced wonderful
conditions.  Soft corals appeared to be in great shape.  Fish populations
and variety were very good.  Hard corals were present but not abundant. 
The Florida Keys remain a solid choice for divers.  We will be back.
