UW Photo Comments Dry table space for photographers was one deck level up from the dive equipment. A good place to charge batteries and keep everything dry, but inconvenient if you forget it's up there and you already have your tank on.

Comments This is a really great liveaboard company (Kudos to our British friends!), comparable and sometimes better than Aggressor Fleet (I've been on 9 of these). Blue o Two dive guides are all very knowledgeable and ready to help in any way. The boat crew is always there to help when you need it. Most of the dives are from a zodiac, but they make it easy. The cooks are superb! Once a week they put out a full turkey dinner with all the trimmings (how they accomplish this in a 3' x 6' galley space is beyond me!). Food overall is really good, healthy and plentiful.

Our trip was to The Brothers Islands, Elphinstone, Daedalus, etc. I wish we could have spent the whole week on The Brothers. The soft corals were awesome!!! Tons of fish, big ones (hammerheads, oceanic white tips) and little ones. Lots of stuff here for everyone!
