Comments I found their information prior to arrival very useful, the atmosphere is very relaxed my biggest mistake was overpacking. The ship was as comfortable as a small liveaboard can be, the food was excellent and healthy.The crew were very helpful and made you feel relaxed and part of the experience and less like a customer. The diving was some of the best I have ever done, most days we didn't see another dive boat, most nights we didn't see any lights, we really were in special places visited by only a few operators occasionally. We did do some Bahamas standbys, Thunderball cave, Pig Island, the park HQ, but most of it was new to me and this was my 7th Bahamas liveaboard. My suggestion is to spend a few extra dollars over the low price operators, and get lost with Lost Islands.
