Comments The staff of this sail boat were very eager to please. The Juliet is a 104' Schooner and when there is wind, they turn off the engine and they sail. Lots of fun. The diving was OK as the weather conditions didn't help visibility. This is an excellent experience for divers with a little less experience. We had a dive shop with 4 new divers certifying on board and that may have influenced some of the earlier shallow dive sites in the beginning. We got in 17 dives in 5 days of diving. Three of the 5 days we only made 3 dives which was a little disappointing. All in all I would dive with these folks again. They switch over to the BVI in the winter months. Unlike many other liveaboards, this operation looks for other areas to do trips to so repeat customers can dive other parts of the Caribbean. My wife and I had a very nice vacation diving with these folks.
