Comments Custom Aquatics’ is truly a custom operation. Start with a high-quality dive operation, then add the freedom to tailor the diving day to whatever you want. When you make your reservation, you can specify everything: the schedule, how many dives, which sites, lunch menu, snacks, and end-of-day drinks. As with other operators, we were picked up at our resort and taken to the dive operation. Unlike others, the owner-operators, Fran and Monty, met us in front of their operation, greeted us a soon as we stepped out of the car, and took our gear to the boat. A cut above other dive boats, the Grey Dawn is a very-comfortable 40-ft dive yacht with head, galley, and comprehensive navigation system (the WAAS GPS moving map sure came in handy when heavy weather set in). Despite weather, that day of diving was the best I have ever had, largely because Fran and Monty are such a delight to spend the day with. Custom Aquatics provides the ultimate Bahamas dive experience. We are planning to go back as soon as possible.
