This was my first experience on this boat and only my second in cold water.
 There were only two passengers on this six-pack boat, but they went out
anyway.  In light of the current fuel prices, we didn't go far, but we did
go to some very nice offshore reefs.  The divemaster spent time getting me
set up for the cold water dive and helped to check my weighting.  We dove
on lovely reefs, covered with sponge, and anemone.  There was nothing large
around and the sealions didn't come over to play, but there were lots of
medium size rock fish.  A ling cod posed for my photograph and a wolf eel
came out of his hole to visit.

This is a high quality operation and I will return.
