This was my 4th time with Quiescence and these folks do not disappoint.  It
is a fine operation with 3 6-diver boats.  The staff and boat captains are
friendly and experienced.  Virtually every Keys native I encountered on
this trip complained about the windy weather they had experienced
throughout the winter of 2003-2004.  Conditions were not ideal but we made
the best of it.  The Marriott is a satisfactory selection and it is located
right next door to Quiescence.  Fish life seemed more abundant and mature
than on previous trips.  The Florida Keys remains a very viable choice,
especially for those looking to log a good deal of bottom time on reefs
& wrecks while staying in the USA.
