Small rinse bucket on the boat, but this was a small 6-pack boat, no cattle
car diving, so not much room for larger rinse bucket for larger cameras.

This is third year in a row to return to N2Blue. Derrick/Anne Marie are a
husband wife team. Both are DMs and boat captains that trade off so you get
to stay under as long as you surface with 500 psi. One pier dive with Anne
was 1hr. 45 min, got great shots of 3 seahorses and a yellow frog fish.
Most other dives depending on depth were 1 hour plus.

Fresh cut fruit and bottled water on board. They take your BC, reg,  and
fins back to the shop and rinse on board when you return in the morning. 

Five wrecks and debris pile fomr the old pier on the West end, but prefer
the North Shore for Eagle rays and sharks with great walls. Decmber brings
the Christmas winds, so better to go Feb thru June to get great wall
