Comments [None]the boat was great with 30 divers and 6 crew. even though this was the smallest of the 3 truth boats, nobody ever felt crowded. The food was excellent, rivaled what we had on an Aggressor last year. The boat, crew, bunks and food were all excellent. We were disappointed with the diving, as we only dove San Miguel island. Visability was poor near the island and the kelp and marine life looked bad. We thus dove the sea mounts out at sea where the vis increased considerably to 50 plus feet but not until at least 70 feet down where the water temp was below 55 degrees. There we saw much nudibranches and coral, very pretty. The only negative about the operation was fact that the anchor and chain did much damage to these pretty corals. Too bad moorings couldn't be used. At only $435 for 3 days diving, its a good deal for us northwest divers without drysuits.
