Comments This is our second time on the Juliet out of Miami. The crew is wonderful and will try to fill any request. We were supposed to go South to Cay Sal, but due to Hurricane Wilma we had to stay further North. We essentially ended up doing figure 8's around Bimini all week. It took us 7 hours to cross the Gulf Stream with very rough seas. Needless to say there was some fish feeding going on! It was quite windy with a lot of strong currents. The reefs in the area didn't appear to be healthy. We saw considerable bleaching and algae growth. The crew put up the sails several times during the week which is really neat. The boat is in need of a little TLC. However, it is still a good deal, and you won't find a better crew anywhere.
