Comments This is a first class operation. The boat was spotless, the crew enthusiastic and always accommodating, the food was excellent and plentiful, and the Captain is very good. Their famous "Washing Machine" drift dive is a real kick, entering the water from a moving boat and being picked up by the same 102' catamaran expertly! All dives are done off the main boat, which allows individual bottom times according to your desire. There are two private showers on the dive deck that provided hot water to the very last diver (usually me). The only "extra" they do not provide is hot towels after every dive. The reservation process was excellent, and the crew was wonderful. Our group of 19 divers had an excellent and very relaxed week and are planning to return.
