Comments We dove as part of a cruise on the Emerald Princess which was a great way to dive numerous islands but only gave a brief sample of each. The boat was large and roomy for the 24 divers on board, divided into two groups of 12. No crew help setting up, gearing up or getting off the boat. Predive briefing was good incorporating the history of the wrecks as well as the dive plan. The diving was adequate on 2 wrecks, one being the Antilla, but visibility was subpar. My greatest concern was that we were told to follow the divemaster but he took off with part of the group leaving 5 or 6 to navigate back to the boat on our own. There did not appear to be any attempt to locate us and we pretty much did our own dives on both wrecks.
