Comments Good:
I rate this trip very highly. Having experienced live-aboards around the world, this crew and accomodations are first class. As a photographer I found their photo amenities and layout, tops for both video and still. On board E-6 processing and a video produced by the crew using clients footage. This trip will please everyone, hard-core diver to novice. Plenty of side diversions for those who choose to hike, kayak, beachcomb, snorkel or fish.

Didn't Know:
Met the boat late afternoon of the 1st day, but did not depart until the next morning. Wish the night dive was done before dinner, so you could enjoy a glass of wine with the meal.

Bad:
Nothing
