This is our second trip on the "Cuan Law" and we were just as
pleased as on our first.  The boat (105' x 44') is spacious and
well-appointed.  In addition to offering diving, the boat carries one and
two person kiacks, two Hobbie Cats and two 20' Zodiacks, used for dive
sites where the Cuan can't anchor and for water skiing.

The food was delicious and plentiful and the entire crew (captain and 5
others) were delightful and accomodating.  Each dive was preceeded by a
thorough briefing including a large site map.  Divers could follow
divemasters, and map their own course and pace, as they chose to.

If you are a Gonzo 'gotta have 5-6 dives a day' type, the "Cuan"
is not for you.  If you'd like a slow-paced, luxurious vacation, with 2-3
dives a day, with other acquatic activities available, and wonderful and
spacious accomodations, this is the vacation for you.
