Comments Trip begins and ends in Miami. The captain clears Bahamian customs and immigration for all passengers both entering and leaving the Bahamas. US customs and immigration agents meet the boat upon returning to Miami so no need to do the same at the airport. Never touched land during the week but enjoyed very smooth Gulf Stream crossings in both directions. Not much wind during the week but still managed to hoist the sails several times. Very nice to have the sound of the engines off for part of the afternoons. The food, while not gourmet, was filling and there was plenty of it. The cabins are quite large and have plenty of storage space. Large dive bags are stowed in a storage compartment during the week. 2 cabins have ensuite heads, all cabins have their own sinks. Most times everyone showered on the deck after dives. Soap, shampoo, and conditioners were provided. There are 3 additional heads on board; two below decks and one toward the stern. Well run boat with friendly crew. The week is spent away from other dive locations and we didn't see another dive boat the entire week. The Juliet goes to remote areas away from other operations. The lack of any light pollution from land makes for excellent star gazing! Limited equipment is available for rent on board but check before leaving home to make sure about sizes and availability.

UW Photo Comments There is a lack of a dedicated area for photographers. There is a separate rinse barrel for cameras but no place to set up your rig on a table other than the topside table used for meals. If there are several large camera rigs on the same trip it can be a problem. You can take your gear down to your cabin but lighting and the steep stairs make this not very convenient.
