Comments On the Sun Dancer 2 they practice "fin-tastic" service on the dive deck. ie they put on your fins before you giant stride off the back deck, and remove your fins while still on the ladder upon your return to the boat. On this trip there was noticeable movement fro side to side of the boat at anchor which made finding and then getting back on the boat more difficult. I have never been on a liveaboard with a more enthusiastic crew-Capt. Meagan really set the tone for the rest of her shipmates. The cabins have side by side beds, no bunk beds to be found, with an incredible amount of storage space.
