[ even though there were 30 divers and 6 crew nobody ever felt crowded. the
food was great even rivaled the Bay Islands Aggressor that we were on last
year. The crew were friendly and professional and very helpful.  The diving
wasn't too good.  We stayed around San Miguel island only for the 3 days. 
The kelp and marine life looked bad.  We thus moved to various sea mounts
out at sea were vis increased but at depth of at least 70 feet where it was
COLD.  Here the marine life was plentiful.  The only thing that bothered a
few divers was watching the anchor chain destroy much coral, starfish etc.
Too bad moorings couldn't be used.
