Comments 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.
