   Tilden's Scuba Center(MM 49.5) was very safety conscious and requires  a
dive guide on all Thunderbolt wreck dives. Crew was very helpful and did
very complete dive briefings.Dive boat was in good condition and had all
necessary safety equipment. Did not stay or eat locally but traveled on to
Looe Key(MM 27.5) after the morning dives. Thunderbolt was an excellent
wreck and if visibility had been better, the dive would have been
spectacular.
