Comments Great time with a full boat of twelve. Great crew and really great Chef. Wife and I filled spots on trip and were not disappointed with any on board. Always unsure when you book on a live a board and you know no one else. All were great to be with. Weather was good and we had great diving. Only disappointment was that the vis. was not good. mostly about 50 ft. at best. Fish life was good and only a few sites had a large number of Lionfish. They, the local gov., need to let us kill them when we see them. Great food was ready when we were back on board. Rooms were small little storage and sink. Shared showers and bathroom. Went under sail when wind was good. We beat the hurricane by a week.
