Comments What a difference a day makes! Was referred to Scuba Do by Jeff at HMS Minnow (he was totally booked), thanks Jeff. Booked morning and afternoon two tank dives. Very nice boat, lots of room, will hold 12 divers they max at 10. Laurie was great to work with on making the reservation and on getting on the boat. Good safety briefing before leaving the pier. Have a rinse bucket for masks and a separate bucket for cameras, and a small table as well for camera gear, very nice! First dive was on the Spiegel Grove, Tony the captain put us back by the stern. Once we were on the buoy Tony started the dive site briefing and he was thorough, he took lots of time to talk about the site, conditions, best way to dive the site. No hurry to get into the water or to end the dive. That's the way it went all day, all my reef dives went over 60 minutes. Overall a great operation, will dive with them again the next time I go down to the keys.
