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.
