Comments Captain Red and the crew made this trip is a diver's dream. The boat captain worked very hard all week to put us on the best dive sites. The food was absolutely wonderful with fresh platters of sushi on the deck after a dive. I really like their attitude of if you do have a drink please don't dive. I only wish I had not taken so many clothes and with the airlines charging for every bag now, it is important to know. Take a swimsuit for every day and 1 change of clothes for port day. We won't pack so much when we go back next year.
