There was no emphasis on photography but then again there wasn't anything
overwhelming to take pictures of.  I took my camera the first day but left
it behind the second day.

The crew was very helpful and informative.  The site briefings were good
and gave you the information you needed.  Buddy teams were allowed to dive
their own plans which eliminated group diving.  The boat was very easy to
get on off and was not crowded unlike some of the other operations in town.
 The diving is not spectacular but is worth doing for one or two days.  The
only problem I had was that their Nitrox fill station was not working while
I was there so I could not dive Nitrox on the wreck dives.
